The FMC site, in the City of Fridley, Minnesota is approximately 1,000 feet east of the Mississippi River, just north of the City of Minneapolis, and upstream of the City of Minneapolis drinking water intake. Investigation revealed historical waste disposal practices and found contamination of the ground water and Mississippi River. Currently underlying ground water and alluvial aquifers with discharge to the Mississippi River are contaminated with trichloroethene (TCE), Porchloroethylene (PCE), benzene, toluene, xylene and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). TCE has been estimated to account for 98 percent of the contaminant loading. The selected remedial action for the site includes: ground water pump and treatment with discharge to a sewer system; ground water monitoring; and implementation of institutional controls with land use restrictions to mitigate against near-term usage of contaminated ground water between the site and the Mississippi River.
