Hugo Road Watermain Project


The watermain on Hugo Road from Gaston Avenue to Taylor Avenue has failed multiple times in the previous years. This project will replace that watermain with new Ductile Iron Pipe, as well as reconnecting new services from the new watermain. The watermain replacement is to be completed prior to Ramsey County's Road Improvement Project. 

On February 7, 2022 the White Bear Township Town Board ordered the preparations of plans and specifications for the Hugo Road Watermain Replacement project.

The Township awarded the project in the amount of $373,182.54 to Northdale Construction Company Inc., during the May 16, 2022 Town Board meeting. Construction is set to begin the week of June 12, 2022.
