City of Monroe City - Sewer Improvements

Monroe City, MO

2009: Klingner provided professional services for a sewer line prioritization study, an Inflow/Infiltration Flow monitoring study, and “Energize Missouri Communities” funding application.  The sewer line prioritization study was a detailed review of all prior I/I studies, which covered approximately 50% of the existing sewer system.  The Inflow/Infiltration Study involved completion of up to two rounds of flow monitoring in the previously unstudied areas, and smoke testing in identified problem areas.  The “Energize Missouri Communities” funding application was a cooperative effort between Klingner and the City for a competitive grant, and set forth two separate projects for possible funding. Wastewater Treatment Plant Energy Efficiency Improvements were constructed at a cost of $327,460.00 and consisted of blower replacements, pump motor replacements and aeration diffuser retrofits.

2012: Klingner provided professional services for USDA-Rural Development Environmental Report, exhibits and other information for the following required state and federal agencies for review and comment on potential environmental impacts of the proposed project:

  • US Fish and Wildlife
  • Missouri DNR State Historic Preservation Office
  • US Army Corps of Engineers – St. Louis District
  • Natural Resource Conservation Service
  • MoDOT
  • State of Missouri Office of Administration

The report outlined comments and necessary mitigation to avoid environmental impacts from the proposed sewer project.  Klingner also addressed any comments that USDA had regarding the environmental report until approval. Ultimately this project became a design and construction project for sewer improvements. The project was recently bid at a cost of $3.4 million, which is about $1 million below project budget.
