Lagoon Project

Mandates from Iowa’s Department of Natural Resources, the DNR, required the City of Norway to engage the engineering services of Snyder & Associates to design a renovated Lagoon.  Once the DNR approved our plan, the City of Norway sought bids from qualified contractors and in October of 2017, the winning bid of $2,285.000  was accepted from Ricklef’s Excavating.  Work at the Lagoon started in mid April of 2018, and by mid June of that year, tons of earth had been moved and yards of concrete poured. Work at the Lagoon proceeded sporadically from the middle of July 2018 to the end of March 2019, when work began on installing a new 15 inch main sewer line from the City to the Lagoon. By the end of May 2019, much of the new main sewer line was in and most of the electrical wiring and controls were installed at the Lagoon. June brought rain but by the 24th, the main sewer line was in, and on the 26th of the month, the new Lift Pumps at the Lagoon were installed. The old lagoon is still to be dredged of sludge and ground work remains to completed.
