Minneapolis, southeast N.D. sites to share in money
The money, announced today, will pay to excavate contaminated soil from hundreds of residential lawns in Evansville, Ind. Minneapolis, Madison County, Mo. and Omaha, Neb. Up to $25 million will connect 180 houses in southeastern North Dakota to public drinking water. Their wells were tainted with arsenic from bait applied to control grasshoppers in the ’30s and ’40s.
