The MPCA and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) are currently working together to implement a comprehensive long-term plan to delist the Saint Louis River Area of Concern (SLR AOC). Many of the Beneficial Use Impairments (BUIs) in the AOC are linked to the presence of sediment contaminants. The site consists of a former shipping slip in the Duluth Harbor that now serves as a private marina as well as the location of the William A. Irvin shipping vessel and museum.

Many of the Beneficial Use Impairments (BUIs) in the AOC are linked to the presence of sediment contaminants. A Remedial investigation was completed at the Site and contaminated sediment was identified at the head of the slip. Based on a review of historical use around the Site, upland sources of contamination may exist around the Site.

Approximately 70 percent of all Minnesotans rely on groundwater as their primary source of drinking water. Wells used for drinking water must be properly sealed when removed from service to protect both public health and Minnesota’s invaluable groundwater resources. The Minnesota Department of Health protects both public health and groundwater by assuring the proper sealing of unused wells.
Clean Water funds are being provided to well owners as a 50% cost-share assistance for sealing unused public water-supply wells.
