In February 2018,  Minnesota and the 3M Company settled their lawsuit regarding natural resource damages associated with a group of chemicals known as PFAS. 3M is making a grant of $850 million as a condition of the settlement to address two priorities in the east metropolitan area.

  • Priority 1: Safe and sustainable drinking water
  • Priority 2: Restore and enhance natural resources
