About the Superfund Redevelopment Initiative
This nationally coordinated effort provides EPA and its partners with a process to return Superfund sites to productive use. Learn more at Superfund Redevelopment Initiative.
Redevelopment at the Site
The Eberle site did not require cleanup; the area is now in reuse as a city park.
The Oakdale Dump Superfund site is located in Oakdale, Minnesota. Three separate properties make up the site: the 55-acre Abresch property, the 5-acre Brockman property and the 2-acre Eberle property. In the 1940s and 1950s, industrial and non-industrial waste dumping occurred at the three properties. In 1980, a Minnesota Pollution Control Agency investigation identified contamination in the soil of the three properties. EPA added the site to the Superfund program’s National Properties List (NPL) in 1983. Cleanup activities included the removal of contaminated soil and waste, treatment of soil, and collection and off-site treatment of contaminated water. Cleanup activities also include the monitoring of groundwater to detect changes in groundwater quality. Commercial use and a wooded vacant lot make up the Brockman property. The Eberle property consists of a city park.
Economic Activity at the Site
As of December 2016, EPA had data on one on-site business. This business employed one person and generated an estimated $43,000 in annual sales revenue. View additional information about redevelopment economics at Superfund sites.
