Due to mandates from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the City of Norway engaged the services of Snyder & Assoc. to design our future Lagoon. Once the DNR approved our plan for the lagoon, our engineers sought bids from qualified contractors. 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, and by mid June, tons of earth had been moved and scores of yards of concrete poured.Though little work was done at the Lagoon from the middle of July 2018 to the end of March 2019, it has once again started in earnest, with work to install a new and larger main sewer line; by the end of April, a substantial part of the new main had been completed.By the end of May, much of the new., and larger, sewer line was in and most of the electrical was installed out at the new plant.June brought more rain but the 24th the main line was finally in and on the 26th the new pumps down at the lagoon were installed.Some wiring is left to be completed and the old lagoon is still to be dredged out.
