The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District wants to transport methane from the Emerald Park Landfill in Muskego to Jones Island sewer treatment plant in Milwaukee. MMSD is considering two options: building a 19-mile pipeline through densely developed areas in Greendale, Greenfield and Milwaukee; or building a pipeline that connects to an existing petroleum pipeline that the MMSD is negotiating to buy.

Meade Electric Co. Inc., McCook, Ill., submitted the low bids for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District’s methane pipeline project.

The contract is to build a pipeline to transfer methane gas from the Emerald Park Landfill in Muskego to Milwaukee, where the gas will be burned to power the district’s Jones Island sewer treatment plant. The district asked for two bids: a 19-mile pipeline, and a shorter route where the district would use an existing pipe for a portion of the distance.

Meade was the lowest for both proposals, offering $29.3 million for the longer route and $16.9 million for the shorter.

The district’s engineers estimated the longer route would cost $29 million, and the shorter route $21 million.
