Are the dredged materials contaminated?

Prior to the project, the existing pond bottom soils were characterized and compared to MPCA guidance documents. All materials meeting Dredge Management Level 2 or 3 have been and/or will be hauled offsite to an approved disposal location (i.e. landfill). Materials meeting the criteria for residential re-use (Dredge Management Level 1) will be placed in the open area previously used as youth ball fields.
