The City of Minot was inundated with flood waters from the
Souris River in the spring of 2011. Unprecedented levels of flood
water raged through the central part of Minot, destroying
residential and commercial properties in its path. The city's
sanitary sewer system was severely impacted by flooding. Many
sanitary and storm sewer lift stations were inoperable or severely
damaged. The City of Minot retained Apex Engineering Group to
assist with the recovery effort and shore up the city's sanitary
and storm sewer infrastructure.
The first task in the flood recovery effort was to inspect the
various sanitary and storm lift stations, assess infrastructure
needs and prioritize facilities critical for immediate operation.
Field work and facility assessments were conducted by Apex and city
personnel. Independent electrical contractors were brought in to
correct many electrical, instrumentation and control deficiencies
at the stations. Within weeks many of the major pumping facilities
were back in operation.
The flood recovery effort in Minot created many
challenges. Apex was a trusted advisor for the City
of Minot personnel as they brought their sanitary and storm sewer
infrastructure back on-line.
