Major Waste Water Infrastructure Project In Sioux Falls Near Completion
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A major waste-water infrastructure project is nearing completion in Sioux Falls.
Four miles of massive sanitary sewer pipes will carry more than 90% of the city’s waste water. The project includes replacing a section of pipe with nearly 2 miles of sewer line from West of Cliff Avenue and Chambers Street, to the main pump station near I-229 and East Rice Street.
This required crews to create a tunnel underneath I-229 during the process. The 2-year project is expected to be completed this fall as part of a $25M city investment in wastewater infrastructure in Northeast Sioux Falls.
The update should help reduce the risk of backups and sewer overflows.
The city says the new pipes should last for nearly 100 years.
