From the MPCA on 11/7/2014:

Over the next couple of months, General Mills contractors will be in the Southeast Como neighborhood:

  • Drilling 17 temporary wells/soil borings for collection of soil and groundwater samples
  • Installing approximately 43 groundwater monitoring wells
  • Installing approximately 30 soil vapor monitoring points

This investigation work will help develop a corrective action plan to address the remaining site impacts.

The off-site drilling investigation work began October 27, 2014 and is anticipated to continue through mid-December 2014. For more information on where the drilling will occur, see figure 14 (found above or linked) in the Vapor Intrusion Pathway Investigation and Feasibility Study Work Plan
