Connection to L-P Rural Water
For over 20 years Edgerton has been discussing a connection to Lincoln Pipestone Rural Water (LPRW). The current Council wanted an outside opinion to evaluate all alternatives and to provide a recommendation. These alternatives included expanding their existing well field, connecting to LPRW for 100% of their demand or blending with LPRW. DGR completed a preliminary engineering report that met all the requirements for Rural Development. In fact, this report is being used as an example for other communities to use. This report evaluated the most cost-effective long-term solution for their water system. This included determining the cost of production to compare between the sources. Ultimately, the City decided to connect to LPRW. This was not the most cost-effective solution. However, the non-monetary factors such as the long-term viability of the aquifer and water quality steered the decision to blend the City’s water with LPRW.

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.

Wastewater Treatment Facility (SBR)
The City ultimately determined a flow-through style SBR system to be the preferred choice based on the selection criteria and the ability to meet anticipated permit limits.
