Construction of Sioux Center’s new wastewater treatment plant is slated to move forward next spring with the recent approval of a construction bid.


The Sioux Center City Council approved the low construction bid from Gridor Construction, Inc., of Buffalo, Minn., which was about $1 million below the engineer’s estimate.


“We are pleased to have a favorable bid from what our research has shown to be a quality contractor as we build this plant to serve our community now and for generations to come,” said Sioux Center Utility Manager Murray Hulstein.


The proposed wastewater treatment plant is being built to meet new, more stringent DNR standards and replace the community’s aging wastewater facility.


“This plant is designed to serve Sioux Center in a stewardly manner, improving our environmental impact and anticipating continued growth in our community,” Hulstein said.


The new plant will be built just west of the existing wastewater plant, near the intersection of 13th Avenue and 20th Street SE. Plans call for the plant to be operational by mid-2020.


The City of Sioux Center’s sanitary sewer system collects and treats wastewater produced by more than 2,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers and is paid for with user fees from these customers.
