Saint Paul – The City of Saint Paul has begun work to assess the bluff and surrounding area
where a slope failure occurred on Saturday afternoon, April 28. Large pieces of rock debris from
the bluff were scattered across Wabasha Street prompting the city to close the street and evaluate

In the spring thru fall of 2018, Public Works Sewer Utility will be rehabilitating deteriorated city owned sewers. Instead of digging up the street and installing a new sewer pipe, the sewer will be repaired by installing a pipe liner within the existing sewer. The sewer liner creates a new long-lasting pipe within the old sewer.
