International Terminal - Port of Newport

Summary Information
(last updated on: 12/27/2013 8:25:24 AM)
[Dec. 2012] Contaminants in the two port vessels (the Pasley and Hennebique) and contaminated materials associated with them, were removed, and confirmation samples showed either complete removal of contaminants or residual contaminants to be below screening levels. Therefore, there are no unacceptable risks to either human or ecological receptors remaining at the site. Therefore, DEQ has made a No Further Action decision regarding contamination associated with the Pasley and Hennebique at the Port’s International Terminal.

Remediation and redevelopment of the docks was phased such that the Terminal continued to be accessible to Newport’s distant and local commercial fishing fleet as well as to those tenants that serviced the fishing fleet. The terminal was also built to be consistent with federal initiatives for marine navigation included in the Maritime Administration (MARAD) Marine Highway System Plan and the Safe Port Act. Over $19 million from federal, state, and local funds went into the terminal's redevelopment, including a $15 million general obligation bond from the Port and $1.5 million from EPA through brownfields grants and loans.

The $19 million + investment helped protect Yaquina Bay estuary, open the Port to international trade, and catalyze a new wave of subsequent economic investment in the area. In 2009, NOAA selected the Port as the new home for its Marine Operation Center Pacific Fleet. NOAA cited the Port’s Terminal Redevelopment project and its design elements as one of the key factors influencing its decision.
