Background

The 8.6-acre Nutting Truck and Caster site is located in Faribault, Minnesota. Between 1891 and 1984, Nutting manufactured and distributed casters, wheels, hand trucks and towline trucks on site. From 1959 to 1979, Nutting's Faribault facility used a seepage pit in the west-central area of the site to deposit waste and sludge, including waste solvents. These operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, groundwater monitoring activities are ongoing.
