The Arrowhead Refinery site is located in Hermantown, St. Louis County, Minnesota. The operation generated waste by-products which were discharged into an uncontained 2-acre lagoon and a waste water ditch in a wetland area. Investigations conducted by EPA in 1979 revealed that onsite surface water was transporting contaminants to nearby wetlands areas and navigable waters. The primary contaminants of concern are VOCs, PAHs, and lead, and they are found in onsite soils, sediments, surface waters and ground water. The selected remedial action for the Arrowhead Refinery site are cited.
