MPCA proposes to add 2 sites to Superfund list

July 8, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is proposing to add two contaminated sites to the state's Superfund list.

The proposed additions are the former Executive Cleaners site in Worthington in Nobles County of southwestern Minnesota, and the Spring Park Municipal Wells site in Spring Park near Lake Minnetonka in Hennepin County.

Adding them to the list would make them eligible for state funding to investigate and clean up these sites.

The MPCA says the contaminants of concern at both the Worthington and Spring Lake sites are chlorinated solvents, which can adversely affect health, particularly the immune system and developing fetuses.

The MPCA is taking public comments on the proposed additions through July 24.
