Shell Oil asks city if it can test soils at park
Shell Oil has asked the Alexandria City Council if it can search for petroleum hydrocarbons that may have leaked from an old bulk plant on the site that's now Martin's Hope Park.
The park is located at 217 3rd Avenue East near Big Ole Central Park.
In a letter to the city, Shell Oil said that the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is requesting the company to monitor the site and take remediate action, if necessary.
