“The Lutsen Resort is located approximately 90 miles northeast of Duluth, MN nestled along the cobblestone beaches of the scenic North Shore region of Lake Superior. Founded in 1885, the Lutsen Resort has been in operation for over 130 years and is Minnesota’s oldest resort. This treasured and historic retreat is a Minnesota icon that hosts tourists from around the globe seeking to experience the beauty of nature among the rocky cliffs, forested hills, and scenic rivers.
The resort itself is split into several different phases, each of which requires its own wastewater treatment system. In order to blend in with the natural aesthetics of the resort, each phase has its own constructed wetland treatment system in place. The resort, town-home complex, and employee housing facilities are served by two state permitted vertical flow constructed wetlands. Additionally, the Sea Villas and Poplar River Condos are served by two county permitted horizontal subsurface flow constructed wetlands.”
