Cottage Grove Statement on State of Minnesota and 3M Settlement

The City of Cottage Grove is pleased to see that the State of Minnesota and 3M Company have reached a settlement. We are also pleased to hear that the Attorney General has stated the funds will be used to fund water quality initiatives in those communities directly impacted in the East Metro, including Cottage Grove.  

Cottage Grove is a growing, vibrant community and we plan to use funds to design and build a water treatment facility that will help meet the needs of our community now and into the future. 

Cottage Grove will be working with our state legislators and state agencies to ensure that we can design and build a long term treatment solution that ensures clean, safe water for our residents and businesses.
