Water Treatment Plant

The City of Edina has approved the construction of a new water treatment plant. The city has considered a variety of site options. Two sites include the Southdale area and more recently a site in the Northwest part of the Prospect Hills Neighborhood, 7000 Dublin Road.

This new Water Treatment Plant will be the fifth one in the City. Our goal is to work directly with the public throughout the process to ensure that public concerns and aspirations are consistently understood and considered in the design.

Staff presented a summary of all the information related to the need and location of a plant. After much discussion and consideration, the City Council decided the Dublin Reservoir site would not be the site of a water treatment plant. Staff will resume looking at the Southdale site for the plant. There was discussion that improvements will be needed to address water age and usable storage at the Dublin Reservoir. Staff is investigating what that is. Most likely it is underground piping, pumps, and other improvements in the area around the Dublin Reservoir. The City Council also approved a motion at the regular City Council meeting that same night, stating a water treatment plant would not be located at the Dublin Reservoir site.Last night, June 18th, City Council hosted a work session to discuss which site will be used to construct the new Water Treatment Plant. They have decided to go back to the Southdale site for consideration. Additional information will be posted when it becomes available.
