Crews clean up chromium discharge in northeast Minneapolis

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency will begin cleanup on Thursday of a chromium discharge in northeast Minneapolis. The chromium is currently frozen, which means it does not pose a danger to people in the area, and the substance is not spreading. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has been on-site today with Minneapolis Fire Department and Regulatory Services staff to plan the cleanup, which is expected to be done Thursday.

The chromium is believed to have come from a metal plating company at 1st Avenue Northeast and University Avenue. The chromium discharge is on private property, along the railroad trench behind the property.
