Perfluorochemicals (PFCs) and Minnesota Sites
The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) have investigated a number sites across the state where PFCs were released to the environment. The list below provides links to information about the sites.
In the east metropolitan region, these sites include large waste disposal facilities where PFC-bearing wastes were disposed and the 3M-Cottage Grove manufacturing facility. The overview map shows the location of these sites.
Statewide, MDH and MPCA have evaluated municipal, refinery, and airport fire training facilities where special PFC-bearing fire-fighting foams were reportedly used.
