Background

The MacGillis & Gibbs Co. and the Bell Lumber & Pole Co. are adjoining properties listed as one site on the National Priorites List (NPL). The 68-acre site is located in New Brighton, Minnesota. Both companies have operated wood treatment plants since the early 1920s, although MacGillis are adjoining properties listed as one site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL). The & Gibbs Co. is no longer in operation at the site. Spills and drippage of chemicals have contaminated soil, sediments and groundwater. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
