Sambatek has worked with the City of Spring Park since 1985. Most recently Sambatek worked on an electrical control upgrade project for Water Treatment Plant. Furthermore, Sambatek led the design and construction efforts for the City of Spring Park for two unique projects, including the West Arm Road West project along the shores of Lake Minnetonka and the Black Lake Road reconstruction project within a 20-foot right-of-way. Both projects included undergrounding the overhead utilities. The Sambatek team worked closely with the city staff to acquire the necessary easements for both projects.

West Arm (West) Road Improvements (Phase 1 and 2) | The project involved the complete reconstruction of West Arm (West) Road in the City of Spring Park. Working as the City Engineer, Sambatek designed, bid, and oversaw the construction of the improvements. The project's first phase occurred in 2020, which involved pipe bursting to replace the existing watermain and CIPP lining to improve the existing sanitary sewer. The second phase of work includes street and storm sewer improvements. Curb and gutter and storm sewer are proposed to improve drainage conditions. Coordination with Hennepin County Rail Authority (HCRA) was required for additional ROW. Street improvements included widening the roadway to meet current design standards, adding a turnaround, and bridge modifications to improve access for emergency vehicles.

West Arm West Road Utility & Street Replacement | Sambatek completed the design, construction administration, and construction inspection for the City of Spring Park on a water main and sanitary sewer replacement project along the shores of Lake Minnetonka. The project included cured-in-place (CIPP) sanitary sewer lining and pipe bursting to replace the water main between the homes and shoreline of Lake Minnetonka and along West Arm Road West. The project included 2,200 feet of 10-inch HDPE water main installed by pipe bursting and 1,500 feet of sanitary sewer lining completed with CIPP lining. The project required floating the 10-foot water main out into Lake Minnetonka to facilitate installation. The project received a write-up in the “Trenchless Technology” magazine and a “Project of the Year” award from the Polyethylene Pipe National Association. The project was completed in 2021.

Black Lake Road Reconstruction | This project included the replacement of sanitary sewer, water main, storm sewer, sewer, and roadway, all within a 20-foot right of way. Undergrounding the overhead utilities was included in the project, where the municipal team worked closely with the city staff to acquire the necessary easements.

2019 ADA Ramp Improvements | Sambatek led the design for the ADA and APS improvements along CSAH 15 from Black Lake Road to the City's eastern limit. The project included design, traffic control, permitting, cost estimation, project management, bidding, preconstruction meetings, progress meetings, construction administration and inspection, and coordination with the City of Spring Park, Hennepin County, and State Aid.

MPCA, Spring Park TCE Water Treatment Expansion | We served as the resident engineer for constructing a water treatment plant building expansion, including three new chemical rooms and a treatment area for air strippers. Responsibilities included on-site inspection to ensure contract compliance; conflict resolution between contractor and client; change order negotiation and preparation; concrete and soil testing coordination with 3rd party testers and laboratory; and design change and clarification coordination.

Water Treatment Feasibility Report | The municipal team served as the quality control reviewer for a water treatment feasibility report and construction documents to remove trichloroethane (TCE) concentrations at the City's existing iron and manganese removal WTP. The facility consisted of pre-filter chlorination, gravity filtration for iron and manganese, radium removal, polyphosphate feed for calcium carbonate scale inhibition, and air stripping to remove TCE.
