Water and Sewer Project
Northern Township is planning a project that would install a wastewater system around the Northwest end of Lake Bemidji.
The planned system will run north and east along County Rd 21 (Phase 1) and then along County Rd 20 (Phase 2), ending at Lake Bemidji State Park. The total wastewater system project is approximately 3 miles in length.
The Northern Town Board has initiated an investigation into the feasibility of Northern Township transitioning into a city. On November 2, 2022, a pair of meetings took place at the Northern Town Hall, providing an opportunity for residents to learn more information about the incorporation proposal and offer their input. A strong majority of Northern Township residents expressed their desire to proceed with the incorporation process.
