Superfund Site Profile

The 8-acre Agate Lake Scrap Yard site is located in Fairview Township in Cass County, Minnesota, on the southwest shore of Agate Lake. The Agate Lake Scrap Yard operated from 1952 to 1982 as scrap yard for scrap iron and metal, including many transformers. Facility operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1997.
