TCEducate Lecture Series begins September 9 with Superfund Process
6:30 pm at Van Cleve Park (915 15th Ave SE)

SECIA is proud to present the first in a series of lectures created to raise our neighborhood’s understanding of everything surrounding the contamination and the work that’s being done to clean it up. Topics we plan to cover include Remediation Technologies, Industrial History, Geology and Hydrology, Indoor Air Quality and more. These lectures are designed help put our situation in a broader context and continue us on the path of becoming an informed population, able to understand and participate in discussions on the future of our neighborhood.

Our first lecture covers the basics of Superfund law, the federal and state legislation that facilitates and governs environmental clean-ups. Paula Pentel, Coordinator and Advisor for the Urban Studies program at the U of M, will introduce us to the history, process and modern application of Superfund legislation.

Hans Neve and other MPCA staff will be on hand to connect our new knowledge to our status in the Superfund process and share the latest on the mitigation efforts. MPCA will also host an office hours directly following the lecture to answer specific questions from residents.

Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Ricardo at 612 676-1731 or
