Superior Plating Site Pollution Remediation Review and Status Meeting on August 26, 2014 (Details here) – over 70 people attended the meeting at Lourdes Church on one of the best “outdoor” days of the summer to hear elected officials, representatives of the site owners, and professional staff from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) speak and answer questions about the current status and future handling of the this famous site in the neighborhood, which has been the focus of intense pollution remediation activity over the last 8 or 9 months.
Both Jerry Stahnke, MPCA Project Manager, and Candace Sykora, MPCA Hydrologist have spent much of the last 2 years supervising the remediation. They made a comprehensive presentation and fielded questions from the audience.
The bottom line – in spite of numerous surprises and unexpected problems, the remediation is largely complete. Although some items remain to be done, redevelopment of the site into a high quality residential / retail development is now possible. There is good reason to believe that such a redevelopment will not be long delayed.
