The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, released a draft Environmental Assessment, on Dec. 11, and is seeking public comments until Jan. 11, on a proposed water system improvement project in Pease, Minnesota.
The city of Pease is working with the Corps of Engineers to make critical improvements to the city’s infrastructure. The city requested assistance for water system improvements via the Corps’ environmental infrastructure program.
The proposed work would involve installing a new well, rehabilitation of an existing well, building a new water tower, extending and upsizing the water main and replacing and improving the water main system. The proposed work would largely be completed within previously disturbed areas and roadways within the city limits.
A draft describing the project and the environmental impacts in detail is available to the public and can be viewed and downloaded from the St. Paul District website at: www.mvp.usace.army.mil/Home/PublicNotices.aspx.
