Milwaukee Approves Plan for Second Landfill Gas Facility

By Don Behm, The Journal Sentinal.

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District will spend $14.1 million in the next two years to build storm sewers and complete two storm water storage basins, as part of a flood control plan for the 30th St. industrial corridor north of W. Capitol Drive.

Super Excavators Inc. of Menomonee Falls will build more than one mile of new storm sewers to connect the two basins east of the Canadian Pacific Railway to existing storm sewers, under a contract approved Monday by the district's commission. Super Excavators was the low bidder among three companies competing for the work.

The City of Milwaukee will reimburse MMSD an estimated $8.5 million for costs of installing 5,400 feet of storm sewers, officials said.
