Site Characteristics

General Site Description:
Site History:
Contamination Information: (10/31/94 CPJ/SAS) Northwest Environmental Services submitted a cleanup proposal in October 1987 to address contaminated soils. NES recommended that only soils with chlorophenol concentrations above 600 mg/l be removed. DEQ responded that total chlorophenol concentrations must be eliminated entirely (background), but the proposal to remove petroleum contaminated soils and reuse them for dust control on the site was approved. The proposal to find a commercial user for the remaining dip liquids was also approved. Chlorophenols present in the soil samples are believed to be the result of anti-sapstain wood treatment practices.
Manner and Time of Release: Past operating practices. Time of release: unknown.
Hazardous Substances/Waste Types: petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorophenols (PCP & TCP)
Environmental/Health Threats:
Status of Investigative or Remedial Action: (10/31/94 CPJ/SAS) The contaminated soils were excavated in December 1987. Confirmation samples showed less than 11 ppm of pentachlorophenol in the soil (the practical quantification limit). DEQ's Hazardous Waste program issued a No Further Action (NFA) determination on 2/8/89. Recommend no further action for the Cleanup program. However, the site should be reviewed should land use change from industrial to residential.
