Granite Falls awards its final major flood mitigation project


GRANITE FALLS — City Council members in Granite Falls awarded what they believe is the final major project in over a decade’s worth of flood mitigation work.

Council members on Monday awarded a $1,942,539 bid to Robert L. Carr Company to build a new sanitary lift station on the city’s east side.  

It will replace a lift station built along the Minnesota River that was the focus of major sandbagging campaigns during the floods of 1997 and 2001.
