The top priority from the 3M Settlement for PFAS contamination in the East Metropolitan Area is to make sure area residents have a long-term source of safe drinking water. The Minn. Pollution Control Agency and Minn. Department of Natural Resources are hosting several meetings to share drinking water supply options for those living and working in the East Metro Area.
Meetings will be held from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. Each meeting will begin with a short presentation followed by a question and answer period and then an open house.
We hope you can join us to learn about the list of long-term drinking water supply options and their estimated costs. We’d also like to hear your thoughts as we begin evaluating the list of options and develop recommendations.
Representatives from each of the 14 affected communities along with MPCA, DNR, MDH, Washington County have been working together to identify long-term drinking water supply options for evaluation. The list of long-term drinking water supply options and recommendations are part of the Conceptual Drinking Water Supply Plan; a key component to ensuring that drinking water needs and options for the East Metropolitan Area are appropriately and thoroughly considered. The plan will take into account both public water systems and private wells, using a region-wide approach. While systems are in place to address safe drinking water now, the settlement allowed a little extra time to develop a long-term regional approach.
