Special reports on chemicals in east Metro groundwater

Posted at 7:00 AM on April 1, 2007 by Bill Wareham

During the past couple of months we've heard a lot about contamination of east metro water by a chemical formerly made by 3M. The chemical, PFBA, has been found in the drinking water of more than 140,000 people. Beginning Monday on Morning Edition, Minnesota Public Radio news will present three days of reports examining the state’s response to the problems posed by the chemical:
Was the state response timely? And what is being done to stop the spread of other chemicals from 3M’s production plant in Cottage Grove?

The reports air Monday through Wednesday on Morning Edition and continue on All Things Considered. The reports will be available at mpr.org along maps and other useful information.
