4)  Project location City of Lake Elmo, Washington County
5)  Ownership and Operation:
Who will own the facility: City of Lake Elmo
Who will operate the facility: City of Lake Elmo
Names of any private entities that will occupy/use any portion of the building:

Cathy Bendel, Finance Director, 651-747-3907, cbendel@lakeelmo.org
II. Project Description
7)  Description and Rationale:
This request is for $4,000,000 in state bond funding to acquire land and easements,
design, construct, furnish and equip a new water booster station and trunk watermain lines
along Inwood Avenue and Lake Elmo Avenue from the existing water system to serve
southern Lake Elmo, as well as construction of a new water tower at the corner of Inwood
Avenue and 10
th
Street.
The public purpose of this request is to bring clean, potable water to residents,
business and other entities to support mandated regional growth by the Met Council. The
project further addresses a long term sustainable solution for the delivery of safe drinking
water to much of Lake Elmo affected by the underlying PFC groundwater contamination.
Faced with a Met Council mandate to meet significant growth in southern Lake Elmo,
combined with underlying PFC groundwater adulteration and a stagnate state lawsuit to
recover damages from the contamination, Lake Elmo will extend its municipal water system
through two trunk watermain lines; 1) along Lake Elmo Avenue from the Village water tower to
the proposed 5th Street intersection with Lake Elmo Avenue; and 2) along Inwood Avenue
(including the construction of a water booster station) from 27th Street N to the existing
location of Well No. 3.
Page 396



































































The City of Lake Elmo is increasing its request for state bonding from $2.6 Million to $4
million to accommodate infrastructure needed to provide clean, unadulterated water to
residents / commercial entities that will locate along the I -94 corridor in accordance to a
Memorandum of Understanding with the Metropolitan Council. The $1.4 increase takes into
consideration improvement in hydraulics and water storage capacity needed based on the fact
that water needs to be transmitted from the northeast corner of the community to the
southwest corner of the community to avoid adulterated water. This necessitates the
construction of transmission booster stations, extra oversizing of piping and water storage
facilities to maintain adequate hydraulic pressure and capacity for the entire system. The $4
million request represents roughly 40% of the project costs.

Dear Sir or Madam:

The Lake Superior-Poplar River Water District is hereby respectfully requesting a
supplemental funding authorization of $1.1 million for the 2014 legislative session for the
project described in Attachment A. The Water District’s Resolution of Support is attached.

$3.6 million in state bonding was authorized in the 2012 legislative session, which was
matched by local funds of over $1.3 million, and the project is under construction with a
projected completion date of September 30, 2014. $1.1 million of additional funds are
needed to complete the project, of which approximately $600,000 is needed to complete
main infrastructure components of the pump house/intake at Lake Superior and the main 2.2
mile pipeline supplying water for irrigation, snowmaking and potable water purposes, and
approximately $500,000 is needed to complete an approximately ½ mile secondary pipe and
water treatment equipment for the potable water users.

If you have questions regarding this submission, please feel free to contact either Charles
Skinner or Tom Rider at the contact addresses listed in Attachment A.

Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Best regards,

Charles Skinner
Chairman, Lake Superior-Poplar River Water District
