Summary Information
(last updated on: 3/1/2021 8:22:51 AM)
This site generally referred to as the former Arnold Disposal Site (DEQ ECSI # 4295) and the former Arnold Sludge Disposal Site (DEQ ECSI # 4296). The two sites occupy approximately 40 to 60 acres on a larger 640-acre tract owned by the Oregon Department of State Lands. The site is located south and east of the intersection of Stevens Road and Southeast 27th Street in Bend, Oregon, in Deschutes County. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) obtained the site in 1859 when Oregon became a state. The former Arnold Landfill was operated at the site by Deschutes County, and the land patent to Deschutes County ranged from August 1956 to November 1972. Tax assessor records indicate that ownership of the site was transferred from the BLM to the Oregon Department of State Lands in 1997. Stevens Ranch LLC purchased TL 200 from the State of Oregon in 2020. Stevens Ranch is planning to develop the property into a mixed-use development and in the process of completing a Master Plan for the property.
