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.

The building is expandable to add future treatment equipment that can double the treatment capacity as water demands increase in the future.
