The U.S. Steel Superfund site in Morgan Park has been empty for years, and Monday, Minnesota Pollution Control teams gave a quick update on the clean up.

Experts say the next step is to remove sediment in the water that could be polluting the environment, including the St. Louis River.

“These large complex cites with a lot of industrial activity have a lot of contamination,” said Erin Endsley, a project manager with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. “They’re very large, they’re very expensive. They take a long time to clean it up.”

The MPCA hopes to have a solid plan on what to do with the site by this summer with construction starting in 2016.
