Event description

Description

Earlier this year, Water Treatment Plant #4 (WTP4) returned to service providing water to St. Louis Park residents. Located at 4701 W. 41st St., the plant was taken out of service at the end of 2016 after testing showed that while some volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were being reduced by an implemented short-term treatment solution, others were still increasing.

The city worked with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to design and implement upgrades to treat all identified contaminants, regardless of their source, down to published advisory levels. The upgrades included adding two air stripper units to treat the VOCs found in the water at this plant as well as many other upgrades, primarily to the interior. Visit www.stlouispark.org/water-sewer for more information.

If you're interested in learning more about WTP4 and how the city produces water, plan to attend a tour Tuesday, April 16, between noon - 1:30 p.m. or 5:30 - 7 p.m. This is a rare opportunity to see inside a water treatment plant. Registration is required. Facility is handicap accessible. Tour participants should wear sturdy, comfortable shoes.
