Neighborhood meeting on South Minneapolis Soil Contamination Site Tuesday, July 24, 7 p.m.


U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 will hold an open-house-style neighborhood meeting Tuesday, July 24, to update residents about the South Minneapolis Soil Contamination Superfund site in Minneapolis. The meeting will be at the YWCA, 2121 E. Lake St., from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Representatives from EPA, and state and local agencies, will be available to answer questions about the ongoing project.

The South Minneapolis site encompasses a number of neighborhoods near the intersection of 28th Street and Hiawatha Avenue, where the CMC Heartland Lite Yard was located from about 1938 to 1963. A pesticide containing arsenic was produced there and material from an open-air railcar-unloading and product-mixing operation is believed to have been wind-blown into nearby neighborhoods
