New Brighton transitions back to its own water By Solomon Gustavo Lillie News (St. Paul Suburbs, MN) October 15, 2018) After the Minnesota Department of Health notified New Brighton in 2016 of finding a pollutant called dioxane in its well water, the city had been getting water from Minneapolis ever since. … The contamination was traced back to the former Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant in Arden Hills and the city sued the U.S. Army in 1984 to recoup its costs associated with the water pollution. Three years later, the Army admitted it was responsible for the pollution and in 1988 it entered into a settlement agreement to pay for the city’s continued water treatment needs. In 1992, the Army paid New Brighton $17 million; in 2014, the city sued the Army to enforce terms of the settlement agreement. The two parties settled that suit in January of 2015, with the Army agreeing to pay nearly $60 million to cover the city’s next 30 years of water treatment needs. MDH detected, in 2016, what it called “trace amounts” of dioxane — 2.9 parts per billion to 5.5 ppb — in New Brighton water. Dioxane isn’t covered by the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act, though the department of health set an advisory limit on dioxane at 1 ppb. … For the entire article, see http://www.lillienews.com/articles/2018/10/15/new-brighton-transitions-back-its-own-water -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center P.O.
