3M plant in Brookings finds more PFAS contamination
By: Mondell Keck
A new report indicated the presence of PFAS in shallow groundwater and shallow soil at the 3M plant in Brookings, city councilors heard Tuesday night.
The report comes amid an ongoing effort to track, contain and clean up PFAS contamination at the plant. That effort will expand with new monitoring wells.
Jim Burkhardt, the plant director in Brookings, told councilors the company was continuing to work with the South Dakota Department of Agriculture and Natural Resources regarding additional assessments.
