Water treatment plant
Since 2009, Kraemer Mining & Materials has teamed with the State of Minnesota and the cities of Burnsville and Savage to treat surface water. On average, 3 million gallons a day are drawn from dewatering the quarry and pumped through a 20-inch main to the Burnsville treatment facility, located a mile to the east.
This arrangement reduces the impact on aquifers and nearby calcareous fens by decreasing the need to drill new wells, meeting the growing demand for water in Burnsville and Savage. Kraemer was instrumental in planning, financing and implementing this project that is benefiting the environment and the community.
