In addition to removing excess rain water from the sewer system and repairing and maintaining the existing system, new construction is necessary to meet the wastewater needs of MSD’s service area. Project types are chosen based upon the topography, watershed, and wastewater needs of different areas of the service area, and may include new sewer lines to convey additional wastewater, above-ground storage tanks to store, or deep underground tunnels to both store and convey additional wastewater in times of high service demand.
