3.3 Million Gallon Reservoir Project

To meet long-term water storage demands, the City of Rochester needed to replace two existing reservoirs with a single high-capacity reservoir. Working with Wallace Holland Kastler and Smith, TKDA assisted the Rochester Public Utilities (RPU) with the new 3.3M gallon reservoir design and construction.

Sherman Street Lift Station and Force Main

This project included two phases to upgrade the City of Saint Paul Sherman Street Lift Station and force main to increase capacity, improve reliability, and provide redundancy.

Hidden Falls Stream Underpass

TKDA prepared the drainage and structural design for the daylighting of the creek upstream of Hidden Falls, which was buried in the early 1900s and confined to a 48-inch storm sewer pipe when the property was used as a Ford Assembly Plant.
