In April 2019, Minnesota House Representative Peter Fischer discussed environmental contamination concerns surrounding Mahtomedi, Wildwood Elementary and a proposed youth hockey arena to be sited on top of a old, toxic former mixed municipal waste dump on Mahtomedi Public Schools property.  Fischer claims he is in the process of drafting a bill that will require environmental monitoring wells at existing schools that are within a quarter mile of a school sited on contaminated land. Currently there are no environmental monitoring wells on the Wildwood Elementary land site.
