Summary Information
(last updated on: 1/18/2017 11:27:39 AM)
L.D. McFarland Company leased the site from mid 1920s to the mid 1950s and operated a wood treating facility using creosote to treat utility poles. Operations resulted in creosote impacts to site soils and groundwater. Two significant creosote spills are documented. An estimated 10,000 gallon spill from a railroad car reportedly occurred in 1937 and approximately 10,000 gallon release occurred from an above ground storage tank in 1951 as a result of vandalism. Site investigations were conducted and a remedy (Record of Decision) selected in 2001. Phase 1 of the remedy was completed in 2001. This resulted in the cleanup of Parcel 1 (ECSI site 3331) and the construction of a temporary cap on Parcel 2 (ECSI site 887). The selected remedy for Parcel 2 is a permanent cap and institutional controls to prevent exposure to creosote-contaminated soil and ongoing groundwater monitoring to confirm that impacts to City of Milwaukie water supply wells above risk levels do not occur. The final cap will be constructed as part of site redevelopment. Until the site is redeveloped, the site remains, fenced with a temporary soil cap. Annual protectiveness reviews are conducted to confirm that the interim remedy and planned final remedy are protective.
