3M East Metro Settlement Updates

Agendas for January meetings of 3M Settlement work groups

The agendas for the January meetings of the work groups have been posted on the 3M Settlement website. The agenda for both meetings is the same. Each group will be discussing the process for taking in proposals for projects and how to solicit project ideas.

Both meetings will be held in the Training Room of the Cottage Grove City Hall, located at 12800 Ravine Parkway South. All 3M Settlement meetings are open to the public and time is reserved at each to answer questions from the public.

Summaries for the December meetings are also available on the Government and 3M Working Group webpage and the Citizen and Business Group webpage.

In February 2018,  Minnesota and the 3M Company settled their lawsuit regarding natural resource damages associated with a group of chemicals known as PFCs. 3M is making a grant of $850 million as a condition of the settlement to address two priorities in the east metro area. Priority 1 is safe drinking water and groundwater sustainability. Priority 2 is restoring and enhancing natural resources.
