Summary Information
(last updated on: 7/22/2019 11:14:35 AM)
[Jan. 2011] United Chrome Products (UCP) operated at the site until 1985, discharging liquid electroplating wastes to an on-site drywell. Indoor plating tanks also leaked hexavalent chromium to soil and groundwater beneath the building, contaminating a shallow aquifer and a deeper drinking water aquifer. Chromium was found in surface water up to 2 miles from the site and in sediments up to 1.5 miles from the site, in drainage ditches leading to the Willamette River. EPA listed the site on the National Priorities List (NPL) in September 1984, and has worked with DEQ and the City of Corvallis to implement a variety of remedial actions since then. EPA is the lead environmental agency on this project. DEQ provides oversight and support to EPA and the City.

[1/18/19 DEH] A deed restriction was recorded on the property in September 2011 that restricts residential or agricultural land use, restricts groundwater use, prohibits soil disburbance, and limits access to the site.
