Ford Area C (video)
During the heyday of its St. Paul assembly plant, Ford Motor Company dumped toxic waste over the river bluff and deposited more along the floodplain at “Ford Area C.” In this video, we take you to the old dumpsite itself. You’ll see the Mississippi lapping at the dumpsite’s edge. What pollution remains there? How much is leaching into our river? We still don’t know enough.
If you frequent nearby Hidden Falls or Minnehaha Park or if you care about the environmental and health risks, please join us for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s meeting about monitoring and cleanup at Ford Area C on February 20, 2020.
