2016 Water Tower Rehabilitation
The City of Columbia Heights has one 250,000 gallon water tower located at 4650 Stinson Boulevard. The last major renovation to the water tower was done in 1996.

The City of Columbia Heights will be conducting major maintenance on the water tower that involves removing the paint on the exterior and interior of the steel water tank, making repairs to the steel, and installing a new coating system on both the interior and exterior of the tank. 

It is anticipated that work on the tank will begin April 18 and continue for approximately 8-10 weeks. However, the painting/coating system is very weather dependent on both temperature and humidity, so this schedule is subject to change.

Stinson Boulevard Reconstruction

The complete reconstruction of Stinson Boulevard from 37th Avenue to Silver Lane is scheduled to begin April 4, 2016.  The work will include replacing the concrete surface with a new bituminous surface, new water main, new storm sewer, an 8-foot wide trail, and new street lighting.  In addition, CenterPoint Energy will begin replacing existing gas main along the east side of Stinson Boulevard. 

 

Unfortunately, construction activities will generate dust, noise, and temporary inconveniences. Construction may also generate vibrations from time-to-time. It is our goal to minimize the impact to residents and businesses during construction activities.

Metro Transit Route 801 will be detoured during the construction period. 

We thank you for your patience in dealing with these construction issues.

2016 Water Main Cleaning and Lining

This summer, the City of Columbia Heights, working cooperatively with the Minneapolis Water Works, will clean and line approximately 4,874 lineal feet of water main. The 2016 program area includes:

  • Arthur Street from 40th Avenue to 43rd Avenue
  • 40th Avenue from Central Avenue to Reservoir Boulevard
  • 40th Avenue from Hayes Street to Arthur Street
  • Cleveland Street from 40th Avenue to 41st Avenue

September 6, 2016 Update:  The 2016 program area is progressing slower than anticipated due to unexpected delays.  Public Works crews experienced unmarked gas services that have slowed the completion of the excavations to access the water main. Rain events have also impacted the schedule as the excavations have to be pumped and dried. We appreciate your patience throughout these delays.

The water main cleaning and lining contractor completed cleaning the water main in the program area on Monday, August 29.  The City of Minneapolis will work in conjunction with the contractor to reassemble the water main, disinfect the lined main and put it back in service as soon as possible.  The City of Columbia Heights will follow up with filling and compacting the excavations and street repairs.  The water main cleaning and lining project is currently approximately 65% complete.  The work is scheduled for completion in 4-5 weeks, weather permitting.
