WILLMAR — The Willmar City Council’s Finance Committee is recommending the council amend the western interceptor sewer budget to include the cost of extending a sewer line in the new industrial park.

The council in March authorized design work for extending a 2,400-foot sewer line from an aging wastewater lift station at the old airport terminal building to the western interceptor line.

The $345,000 additional estimated construction cost will increase the western interceptor budget to $4,882,179.

The interceptor sewer will run along County Road 5 from U.S. Highway 12 to the southern interceptor, which carries waste to the new treatment plant located west of the city.

The western interceptor will serve the new industrial park being developed at the old airport site and will improve sewer service to the northwestern area of the city.

The extended sewer line from the interceptor to the old terminal site will be constructed in the Airport Drive Southwest boulevard.

The project will be financed with a combination of city sewer rates, state grant and loans, and revenue from the local option sales tax.
