The biosolids storage expansion includes a 2,000-square-foot, brick clad control room and two new sludge storage tanks. Construction is under way. The general contractor is The Joseph Company of Austin, Minn. The new facility is scheduled to be open this spring.

The city of Blue Earth is located in Faribault County and is situated on the Blue Earth River and conveniently located on the I-90 corridor. The river was given the Native American name "Mahkota" (meaning Blue Earth) for the blue-black clay found on the river banks.
