Contaminated soils usually result from spills or leaks of petroleum products from aboveground or underground storage tanks. When you find a leak or spill, you are required by law to inform the Minnesota Duty Officer at the Division of Home Land Security and Emergency Management; call the 24-hour hotline at (651) 649-5451 or (800) 422-0798.
The soil will need to be laboratory tested, and in some cases, excavated and disposed of properly. Check with businesses in your field for consultant recommendations, or see your local phone directory under "Environmental and Ecological Services" or "Engineers-Environmental." If the contaminated soil is the result of a release from an aboveground or underground storage tank, and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) requires its removal, then you may be eligible for reimbursement of the associated costs. Reimbursement is paid through the Petroleum Tank Release Clean-up Fund - the Petrofund administered by the Minnesota Department of Commerce. For specific information on eligibility, please contact Petrofund staff at (651) 215-1775 or (800) 638-0418.
