The Minn. Department of Health is warning consumers of deceptive tactics in sales of some water treatment systems. Scammers use bogus tests, false claims and inaccurate data. More details are available in an MDH news release.

June meeting notes

The notes and presentations from June’s work group meetings are posted on the 3M Settlement site:

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.
