The University of Minnesota site, composed of four subsites, is in Rosemount, Dakota County, Minnesota, approximately 20 miles southeast of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. Surrounding land use is agricultural and rural residential. The site is underlain by a shallow sand and gravel aquifer and a deeper fractured dolomite and sandstone aquifer. All three subsites were involved with the storage and/or reconditioning of electrical equipment and contain PCB-contaminated soil and debris from spills or disposal of PCB oil. In 1984, ground water sampling identified the burn pit as a source of contamination. This action has been updated and is addressed in this Record of Decision (ROD). This ROD also addresses ground water treatment in the burn pit area and treatment and consolidation of contaminated soil and debris in the remaining three subsites. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, debris, and ground water include VOCs, including chloroform; other organics including PCBs; and metals such as lead.
