City Project No. 16017
This project is located generally located between 43rd and 44th Avenues North and east of Niagara Lane North in Plymouth, Minnesota. This area was developed during the mid-to-late 1980's as the Quail Ridge residential development. Multiple storm sewer pipes deposit surface water into this wetland area from road and residential properties and the wetland serves as the drainage system for surface water in the area. External sediment deposition from roads and yards as well as internal organic matter decay have blocked the natural flow of water through the wetland system. This has resulted in water flowing around the edges of the wetlands where property and infrastructure are impacted. Surface water is blocked from reaching the middle of the wetlands and has created a flood hazard for some properties and homes adjacent to the wetland system. The City proposes to excavate channels 28’ wide up to 4’ feet deep to provide for flood protection.
On January 23, 2018 the City Council awarded the contract to Sunram Construction. Excavation was completed the week of February 26 and erosion control blanket is expected to be installed between March 1 and March 9.
