Tracy Water, Wastewater, and Roadway Efforts

Tracy, MN | Water

Overview

ISG worked with the City of Tracy to explore and design improvements to its water and wastewater systems, including the construction of its own wastewater treatment system.


Opportunity

The City of Tracy needed to make a series of water and wastewater infrastructure improvements, as well as assistance in procuring the funding to make it happen.

Solution

ISG worked with the City of Tracy on a number of phased water and wastewater system improvements, including its wastewater collection system. The project included a nearly 8-acre stabilization pond system, currently under construction. Regionalization with a neighboring community was explored through the PER process, but the terms would not have been favorable for the City of Tracy, so it was determined that the City should construct its own treatment system. ISG strategically planned the utility improvements to leverage surface restoration funding eligibility to also rehabilitate the City’s failing road network.

The project team’s recommendations in the PER were all focused on ensuring the City could maximize eligibility for USDA Rural Development funding. To complete construction of the project, ISG helped the City procure more than $8 million in grant money and additional low-interest loan amounts.
