Pig’s Eye Waste Treatment Plant

Contractor: A & B Welding & Construction
Project Web Site

The Pig’s Eye Landfill is listed on the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s (MPCA) Permanent List of Priorities — the state’s Superfund list. The site is located approximately three miles southeast of downtown St. Paul in Ramsey County, Minnesota (see map: Soil Sampling Locations on the Pig’s Eye Dump). It is bordered by the CP Railroad yard to the north and east, and by the main Twin Cities Municipal Waste-Water Treatment Facility and Pig’s Eye Lake to the south. Pig’s Eye Lake Road borders it on the west side.

The City of St. Paul operated this 300-acre dump from the mid-1950s to 1972. From 1977 to 1985 the Metropolitan Waste Control Commission was permitted to dispose of ash from burned sewage. Incinerator ash was placed on 31 acres of the site east of Battle Creek.
