Dakota City breaks ground on new wastewater treatment facility

Dakota City city officials hosted a ground breaking ceremony for the city’s new wastewater treatment facility Thursday, July 20. The new facility will be located at 367 190th Street and is approximately one mile south of Dakota City’s Corporate Limits. The project is estimated to be completed in fall 2018.

The City’s wastewater treatment facility improvement project consists of the construction of a new wastewater treatment facility, significant repairs to existing lift stations, and the extension of water and sewer services to the new facility. The total project cost is approximately $5.2 million and is funded by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality through the Clean Water State Revolving Loan Fund (CWSRF). Rutjens Construction will construct the new facility and conduct lift station improvements. Penro Construction will provide water and sewer extension services. JEO Consulting Group, Inc. is the project engineer.

“Our current facility is not a viable plant any longer,” said Alyssa Silahacek, Dakota City city administrator. “We need a new facility.”

The current facility is located near homes which presents odor issues to residents. The new facility will be located in the country and will be more efficient and environmentally conscious. There is also room for growth in the event of industrial expansion in Dakota City.

“We're looking forward to getting started,” Silhacek said.
