ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The St. Paul Saints old home is about to get an industrial-grade scrubbing.

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development is devoting $1.25 million toward a pollution cleanup on the site of Midway Stadium. That was the minor league team’s home field until the coming season, when a new stadium opens downtown.

The site was a dumping ground decades ago, so pollutants need to be removed before an industrial building goes up on the land. Minnesota Public Radio News reported Wednesday (https://bit.ly/1rhjgcX ) that the pollutants need to be dealt with so construction can begin in 2016.

The St. Paul Port Authority is working with United Properties on a building big enough for four to five tenants on the 13-acre property.

Pollution grants totaling $4.16 million were announced Tuesday.
