Background

The 7.5-acre Whittaker Corp. site is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A variety of industrial activities has taken place on site since the 1940s, including activities by the Americal Petroleum Corporation. Until 1980, the Whittaker Corporation produced industrial coatings and resins. Chemicals were stored in above ground and underground tanks. Operations and waste disposal practices contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1999.
