More than 3,000 cubic yards of material was relocating during the waste excavation.
Upon conducting Phase I and Phase II ESAs, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) identified several contaminant detections about established standards, including asbestos, at a former dump site in Two Harbors, Minnesota. The City hired MSA to prepare and implement a response action in accordance with the MPCA’s Voluntary Investigation and Cleanup Program guidelines and with an approved budget.
The dump was relocated to prevent further erosion into a nearby stream and eliminate further risk to the public from soil, groundwater and surface water contamination. The site has since been restored and stabilized.
