Metropolitan Council Sanitary Sewer Inspections

Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES), operator of the metro-area wastewater and treatment system, is currently conducting a regional sanitary sewer inspection project, including inspecting and cleaning of MCES sewer pipes in Vadnais Heights. They are video recording the inside of the MCES sewer pipes to document their conditions and help us determine if and when they should be repaired or replaced. This work is done by dropping a robotic camera into the sewer pipes through a maintenance hole. 

Work will occur near selected maintenance holes.

- Noise 
- Odor 
- Crews may be working near roadways and will flag traffic as necessary
