Areawide groundwater studies

Areawide groundwater studies provide a comprehensive picture of an area’s environmental history and groundwater contamination. They support redevelopment of brownfield properties by facilitating faster decision-making by developers, prospective buyers, consultants, planners and regulators.

Bassett Creek Areawide Groundwater Study

Information from the Bassett Creek Areawide Groundwater Study is available through an Environmental Data Access Tool (EDAT), which is an online, interactive mapping tool that allows for easy data access and sharing.

Hennepin County and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) worked together to define the intended use and design of the EDAT. The information provided in the EDAT may be sufficient to determine response actions or provide liability assurances under the MPCA Brownfield Program. The information may also be used to expedite the production of environmental investigation and/or response action plans.
