MINNEAPOLIS -- Neighbors weighed in Thursday night on new rules for Water Gremlin, a Twin Cities company that WCCO has investigated for more than three years. 

In 2019, the state fined the manufacture for emitting illegal and unsafe levels of a cancer causing chemical into the air for more than 15 years, in violation of its permit. This spring, health officials said the chemicals might have hurt the health of people living in White Bear Township.
