Sandness Raw Water Main Project
The City of Marshall Minnesota (population 13,664) is a thriving community in Southwest Minnesota, who relies on ground water to supply safe drinking water. Their growing water demands were exceeding the long-term capacity of their aquifers, which had the MN Department of Natural Resources placing further restrictions on their limited capacity. They had already gone 8 miles outside of town to find water years before… this time they would have to expand their search.
Marshall Municipal Utilities found a new water source which was 27 miles away from their water treatment plant. DGR Engineering designed a combination of 20” & 24” pipeline to deliver this water to the City. We used our knowledge of cost effective rural construction to save Marshall Municipal Utilities millions of dollars in construction costs. In the end, Marshall Municipal Utilities added over 4 million gallons per day of water to fuel their growth for years to come. And with the economical design and bid prices, they had money left in their project budget to tackle other much needed improvements.

DGR Engineering (DGR) worked with the City and the project architect for all aspects of the project including topographic survey, site design, construction survey, construction observation and administration.

Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation
The project was bid and came in under budget. Manhole lids were raised to provide better access in some areas, and rehabilitation of the sewer system was completed to give another 50 years of life to the City’s much-needed infrastructure.
Wastewater Treatment Facility
MBBR technology was chosen based on cost, operational flexibility and most importantly, limited land availability.
DGR employed a Geographic Information System (GIS) in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to first determine the 100-year flood elevations and delineate the floodway boundaries.
Due to concerns with the age and condition of the structures, along with safety clearances to energized equipment and conductors, a project was undertaken to replace the old infrastructure with new underground lines and associated padmount equipment.
