Water Gremlin is working hard to achieve maximum efficiency with its new pollution control equipment. We believe that it is in the best interest of all stakeholders – the community, our employees, and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency – to postpone the testing of this equipment because any data collected from the testing would not be representative of its long-term performance.
In the meantime, an independent third-party specialist continues to monitor our emissions and provide results to the MPCA. Since restarting operations, Water Gremlin has switched to t-DCE, a solvent that is not considered a hazardous air pollutant by the Environmental Protection Agency. We want our neighbors to know that their health and the environment are not at risk and remain our primary concern.
