REQUEST FOR COMMENTS
PROPOSED CERTIFICATION OF COMPLETION
EYERLY AIRCRAFT SITE, SALEM, MARION COUNTY

COMMENTS DUE: 5 p.m., Jan. 31, 2013

PROJECT LOCATION: 1945 Turner Road SE, Salem, Oregon

PROPOSAL: DEQ is providing this public notice and an opportunity to comment on a proposed certification of completion for environmental cleanup activities conducted at the Eyerly Aircraft site in Salem, Oregon. The Oregon Military Department entered into a consent order with DEQ on Oct. 31, 2012 to address final remedial actions required by the Dec. 12, 2012 record of decision for the Eyerly Aircraft site.

HIGHLIGHTS: The Eyerly Aircraft site consists of the Eyerly property and adjacent Oregon Military Department properties located at the Salem Airport on Turner Road. The Eyerly property operated as a military aircraft construction and maintenance facility from 1928 to 1950. A carnival ride maintenance and repair business occupied the Eyerly property from the 1950’s until 2004. The adjacent properties are occupied by the Oregon Military Department’s Army Aviation Support Facility No. 1. Oregon Military Department took ownership of the Eyerly property in October 2012. The property is currently vacant and used for equipment storage and vehicle parking by the Oregon Military Department.

Past activities at the Eyerly property resulted in contamination of soil and groundwater by chromium and volatile organic compounds. Cleanup activities including excavation of chromium and petroleum contaminated soil were effective in reducing contaminant concentrations to within acceptable levels for planned uses of the site by the Oregon Military Department. The final remedy in the record of decision included land use restrictions on the Eyerly property and groundwater use restrictions on both the Eyerly and the Oregon Military Department properties.

The land use restrictions implemented for the Eyerly property were recorded with the Marion County Clerk on April 26, 2012. In accordance with the consent order with DEQ, the Oregon Military Department recorded the land use restrictions for their two properties with the Marion County Clerk’s office on Nov. 21, 2012.

Recording of the land use restrictions satisfies the requirements of the consent order and DEQ is proposing that a certification of completion be issued for the site and that no further action is required. The certification of completion requires the Oregon Military Department to comply with the land use restrictions, and to conduct a five year review of the remedy to ensure it remains protective of human health and the environment.

HOW TO COMMENT: The project file may be reviewed by appointment at DEQ’s Salem office at 750 Front St. NE, Suite 120 in Salem, Oregon by contacting Nancy Sawka at 503-378-5075 to make a file review appointment. Site summary information may be accessed electronically by request to sawka.nancy@deq.state.or.us.

Comments on the proposed certification of completion must be received by 5 p.m. on Thursday Jan. 31, 2013, to be considered in DEQ’s decision. Written comments should be sent by mail to Attention: Nancy Sawka, DEQ Project Manager, 750 Front St. NE, Suite 120, Salem, Oregon 97301-1039, by e-mail to sawka.nancy@deq.state.or.us, or fax at 503-373-7944. Upon written request by 10 or more persons or by a group having 10 or more members, DEQ will conduct a public meeting for the purpose of receiving verbal comments regarding the proposed certificate of completion.

THE NEXT STEP: All comments received will be addressed at the completion of the comment period. Once comments are adequately addressed, the DEQ may approve, modify or deny the proposed certificate of completion.

REQUEST FOR COMMENTS
PROPOSED CONSENT ORDER FOR PROSPECTIVE PURCHASE AGREEMENT,
INNOVATIVE WOODLAND SQUARE LLC
ALBANY, LINN COUNTY, OREGON

COMMENTS DUE: 5 p.m., Jan. 30, 2013

PROJECT LOCATION: 1415 Salem Ave. SE, Albany, Oregon

PROPOSAL: DEQ is proposing to enter into a consent order for a Prospective Purchase Agreement with Innovative Woodland Square LLC for the property at 1415 Salem Ave. SE, Albany, Oregon.

HIGHLIGHTS: Innovative Woodland Square LLC is acquiring the property from Mr. Larry Mathews to provide productive use and beneficial redevelopment of the property by building affordable apartments for the City of Albany. Petroleum contamination related to the former operation of a retail service station and underground storage tank system is present in the soil. Contaminant levels are above DEQ’s screening levels for the proposed use of the property so a cleanup is needed.

A grocery store and retail service station was constructed and operated on the southwest corner of the property from about 1949 to 1970. The store and service station buildings were demolished in 2004.

Environmental investigations conducted in the area of the former service station identified three abandoned underground storage tanks, a hydraulic hoist, and related petroleum contamination in the soil and groundwater. Contamination in the soil is above DEQ’s screening levels for residential property use. Woodland Square has completed an environmental evaluation of the property and has proposed remedial actions to address the contamination. These remedial actions include decommissioning and removal of the underground storage tanks, hydraulic hoist and associated piping and pump islands; remediating or removing petroleum contaminated soil to applicable cleanup levels; conducting a soil gas vapor assessment if needed; defining the extent and migration of contaminated groundwater; and, if necessary, installing groundwater monitoring wells and completing at least four quarters of groundwater monitoring.

DEQ’s consent order requires that Woodland Square submit a plan to complete the remedial actions and reduce petroleum contamination to below the applicable screening levels for the intended use of the property. If it is found that contamination is migrating offsite or towards Periwinkle Creek on the eastern border of the property, the potential risk from this contamination will need to be evaluated and addressed appropriately. DEQ reserves the right to require institutional and/or engineering controls on the property to achieve protective conditions for current and future use. The decision to require a control will be based on the level of protection provided by the remedial actions completed on the property.

DEQs prospective purchaser agreement was created in 1995 through amendments to the state’s Environmental Cleanup Law. The prospective purchase agreement is a tool that facilitates the cleanup of contaminated property and encourages property transactions that would otherwise not likely occur because of the liabilities associated with purchasing a contaminated site.

The proposed consent order will provide Woodland Square a release from liability for claims by the State of Oregon under ORS 465.255 relating to historical releases of hazardous substances at or from the property. The proposed consent order will also provide Woodland Square with third party liability protection.

HOW TO COMMENT: The project file may be reviewed by appointment at DEQ’s Salem office at 750 Front St. NE, Suite 120 in Salem, Oregon by contacting Nancy Sawka at 503-378-5075 to make a file review appointment. Site information and documents may be received electronically by sending a request to sawka.nancy@deq.state.or.us.

Comments on the proposed certification of completion must be received by 5 p.m. on Thursday Jan. 30, 2013, to be considered in DEQ’s decision. Written comments should be sent by mail to Attention: Nancy Sawka, DEQ Project Manager, 750 Front St. NE, Suite 120, Salem, Oregon 97301-1039, by e-mail to sawka.nancy@deq.state.or.us, or fax at 503-373-7944.

Notice of Approval of Remedial Action
Approved Remedial Action for Union Pacific Railroad Bulk Plant

PROJECT LOCATION: 123 Chocktoot Street, Chiloquin

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Union Pacific Railroad has completed a cleanup of petroleum-contaminated soil at the former bulk plant on the corner of Chocktoot Street and Klamath Avenue. This facility was formerly the Shell Oil Bulk Plant. The remedial action involved excavating approximately 2,800 tons of contaminated soil and disposing of it offsite at a permitted landfill. The excavated area was then backfilled with clean imported soil.

This remedial action was recommended in a Record of Decision issued by DEQ in January 2012. The work was conducted between August and October 2012. Based on review of the construction completion report, DEQ will issue a No Further Action determination for this site.

BACKGROUND: The Southern Pacific Transportation Company leased the site to the Shell Oil Company prior to 1984. Beginning that year, Southern Pacific leased the site to the May-Slade Oil Company, which operated the bulk fuel facility until 1998. Union Pacific Railroad became the property owner when the company purchased Southern Pacific in 1996. May-Slade subleased the site to the Clough Oil Company in 2000 or 2001. May-Slade terminated their lease with Union Pacific Railroad in 2005, at which time Clough Oil removed all aboveground and underground structures. Cleanup and environmental monitoring began at this site in 1991, when five underground petroleum storage tanks were removed. The recent removal of petroleum-contaminated soil has reduced remaining contamination to acceptable levels.

FOR MORE INFORMATION: The project file, including environmental investigation reports, may be reviewed by appointment at DEQ’s Columbia Gorge office, 400 E. Scenic Drive, Suite 307, The Dalles, OR 97058. To schedule an appointment, contact DEQ project manager Bob Schwarz 541-298-7255 x230 or schwarz.bob@deq.state.or.us.

Request for Comments
Proposed Conditional Approval of Cleanupat former Val’s Texaco and Delphia Oil Bulk Plant

Comments due: 5 p.m., Wednesday Jan. 30, 2013

Project location: Both locations are in Astoria, Oregon. The former Val’s Texaco is located at 452West Marine Drive. The former Delphia Oil is located at 65 Portway St.

Proposal: Pursuant to Oregon Revised Statute, ORS 465.320, the Department of Environmental Quality issues this notice regarding a proposed conditional No Further Action cleanup determination for a portion of the Astoria Area Wide petroleum cleanup site. The Astoria Area Wide site is divided into five operating areas based on property ownership, geography, and contaminant characteristics. Area 2 formerly contained Val’s Texaco, a service station and Delphia Oil, a bulk fuel facility. Val’s Texaco is directly south of and adjacent to Delphia Oil. Together, Val’s Texaco and Delphia Oil are bordered by Marine Drive to the south; Portway Road to the east; Industry Street, Burlington Northern Railroad and the former Shell Oil Bulk Fuel Facility to the north; and the Delphia Warehouse/Storage building and a Steam Engine Museum to the west.

Highlights: In December 2001, DEQ issued an order (DEQ No. ECSR-NWR-01-11) to the Port of Astoria, Val’s Texaco, Delphia Oil and several other current and past owners and operators, requiring investigation and cleanup at and adjacent to the Port’s facilities where releases of petroleum fuels occurred. The site-wide investigation work was completed in 2008. Cleanup alternatives for other areas of the site have been completed or are in progress. Val’s Texaco and Delphia Oil conducted a supplemental investigation in 2008 and 2009 that focused on determining the extent of light non-aqueous phase liquid at the Delphia Oil property. Delphia Oil completed several removal actions from 2004 through 2011 during which approximately 1,109 gallons of liquid petroleum (gasoline) were removed from the site, primarily through vacuum extraction. A residual risk assessment was completed to evaluate risk posed by remaining contamination in Val’s Texaco and Delphia Oil. The risk assessment indicates that while residual soil and groundwater contaminants remain at the site, concentrations are below DEQ’s risk-based screening values. Current environmental conditions are therefore protective of human health and the environment. DEQ’s NFA determination is based on site use being industrial; if site use changes additional site work may be necessary. This information will be memorialized in a deed restriction to be recorded with the property deed.

How to comment: Send comments by 5 p.m., Wednesday Jan. 30, 2013, to DEQ Project Manager Anna Coates at 2020 SW Fourth Ave., Suite 400, Portland, Oregon 97201-4987, or coates.anna@deq.state.or.us or fax to: 503-229-6945.

Request for Comments
Proposed Approval of Cleanup at Northwest Solvents, Portland, Oregon

COMMENTS DUE: 5pm, January 31, 2013

PROJECT LOCATION: 635 N Columbia Blvd, Portland, Oregon

PROPOSAL: The Department of Environmental Quality is proposing to issue a “No Further Action” (NFA) determination based on results of site investigation and remedial activities performed at the Northwest Solvents site located at 635 N Columbia Blvd, Portland, Oregon. DEQ has determined that the cleanup is complete and residual solvent and metals contamination does not pose risks to human health and the environment exceeding the acceptable levels defined in ORS 465.315. DEQ is therefore proposing issuance of a No Further Action determination for the facility.

HIGHLIGHTS: NW Solvents is a distributor of dry cleaning solvents and race car fuels. The site includes indoor warehouse storage and a small office. A subgrade truck loading dock accesses the warehouse. A dry well was located in the loading dock bay for drainage.

After a solvent spill in the loading dock area the dry well was removed and solvent-contaminated soil removed. A groundwater well was installed in the loading dock bay and groundwater contamination was found. A groundwater sparging (aeration) system was installed in the well to remediate groundwater. After a year of sparging, the system was shut down and three months later a groundwater sample was collected. Residual soil solvents and metals contamination (from the dry well) as well as groundwater solvent levels were compared to Oregon DEQ Risk-Based Concentrations. Remaining soil and groundwater contaminant levels were below Risk-Based Concentrations for all applicable risk pathways. The loading dock dry well was replaced with permeable pavers.

DEQ concludes that environmental conditions at the site do not pose an unacceptable risk to human health and the environment, and therefore, meet the requirements of the Oregon Environmental Cleanup Laws.

HOW TO COMMENT: The DEQ No Further Action Recommendation Memo and Cleanup Record of Decision for the Northwest Solvents site and other project file information are available for public review (by appointment) at DEQ’s Northwest Region Office, 2020 SW Fourth Avenue, Suite 400, Portland, Oregon, 97201.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF A RECORD OF DECISION FOR
THE SKOPIL’S DRY CLEANER PROPERTY, LOCATED AT 2605 WILLAMETTE STREET, EUGENE, OREGON

Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is giving public notice of a December 10, 2012 record of decision (ROD) for a cleanup of soil and groundwater contamination at the Skopil’s Dry Cleaner property, located at 2605 Willamette Street, Eugene, Oregon. In the ROD, DEQ has selected a remedial action at the Skopil’s Dry Cleaner Site (Site).

Contamination in soil and groundwater at the site appear to result from releases of dry cleaning chemical (perchloroethane, or PCE) to the surface or subsurface. It is likely that much of the contamination at the site resulted from historic past practices at the facility. Skopil’s Dry Cleaner now reports using a non-PCE based cleaner.

Skopil’s has already performed an interim remedial action measure at the Site involving removal of contaminated soil, as well as in-situ chemical oxidation, followed by several years of groundwater quality and air quality monitoring.

Six applicable technologies were considered as remedial actions. The alternatives were: 1) Soil excavation and disposal, 2) soil excavation and disposal together with an engineering control 3) soil excavation and disposal together with in-situ biological/chemical reduction and engineering control 4) limited soil excavation/disposal together with in-situ biological/chemical reduction and soil vapor extraction, 5) soil excavation/disposal together with in-situ biological/chemical reduction, in-situ chemical oxidation, and soil vapor extraction, and 6) soil excavation/disposal together with in-situ biological/chemical reduction (backfill and injection), and soil vapor extraction.

These alternatives were evaluated with regard to the applicability of the technology to the subsurface conditions, the contaminant’s characteristics, and the demonstrated effectiveness at similar sites.

DEQ has selected remedial alternative 4), which is a combination of soil excavation and disposal together with in-situ biological and chemical reduction plus soil vapor extraction that will remove remaining residual contamination and prevent exposure to contamination. The institutional controls will consist of a DEQ-approved Easement and Equitable Servitude (EES) recorded on the property deed. The EES will require the following:

1. If necessary, based on the presence of residual contamination in soil or groundwater, a deed restriction identifying restrictions on the use of the property.

2. Preparation of a Contaminated Media Management Plan for proper management of any impacted media generated during future construction activities.

The EES will run with the land to ensure that future owners or lessees of the property have knowledge of site conditions and the requirements of the EES. With DEQ concurrence, the EES could be removed from the property deed if additional site investigation or testing were performed that demonstrated additional controls were no longer needed.

Project documents for this site are available for public review at DEQ’s Eugene office, 165 E. 7th Avenue, Suite 100, Eugene 97401. Contact the file specialist at (541) 686-7838 or 1-800-844-8467 (toll-free in Oregon) for an appointment.

Proposed No Further Action for former Wallowa County Grain Growers (WCGG) Bulk Plant

Comments due: 5 p.m., January 31, 2013

Project location: NE intersection of Fish Hatchery Ln. and Depot St., Enterprise

Proposal: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Voluntary Cleanup Program proposes to issue a no further action determination for the former WCGG Bulk Plant site located in the NE intersection of Fish Hatchery Ln. and Depot St., Enterprise. DEQ issues a no further action determination when a cleanup has met regulatory standards.

Highlights: The site was a petroleum bulk plant that operated from 1938 until approximately 2006. The above ground storage tanks were removed in 2006. The site is currently a commercial propane storage and distribution facility.

A subsurface investigation was performed in September 2010 and documented soil and groundwater contamination related to the site’s long term operations. Additional investigations were performed to determine the full extent and degree of contamination. Soil and groundwater contamination present at the site was determined by DEQ not to pose a risk to human health or the environment. The Voluntary Cleanup Program has determined no further action is required.

A Contaminated Media Management Plan will be prepared for use by site workers and utility workers to address worker safety and material management if subsurface disturbance is required.

Proposed Conditional No Further Action for the former Nichols Boat Works Site

Comments due: 5 p.m., January 30, 2013

Project location: North Second Street, Hood River, Oregon

Proposal: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) Cleanup Program proposes to issue a conditional no further action determination for the former Nichols Boat Works property (Site) located in Hood River. DEQ issues a no further action determination when a cleanup has met regulatory standards.

Highlights: The Site is a former shipbuilding and repair facility that had operated at four locations in the same general vicinity since 1941. The current location was in use from the early 1970s through 1998. The existing Hood River waterfront was created for industrial use by extensive dredge filling during the 1960s.

In 2002, as part DEQ’s request for investigation of the Site, the owners cooperatively entered into DEQ’s Cleanup program for oversight and help with redevelopment. DEQ oversaw activities, including field investigations and a soil removal and approved a final remedy in 2007. The final remedy was based on a zoning change, development plans, and residual human health and ecological risk assessments that confirmed that the Site did not pose any unacceptable risks. The remedy includes institutional and engineering controls and includes a contaminated media management plan and contingency plans to help management of soils and sediments.

Confirmation sampling indicated that concentrations were below applicable exposure pathway levels and is protective of human health and the environment. The Site will remain listed on the DEQ’s Confirmed Release List and Inventory of Hazardous Substances.

Proposed No Further Action for Suburban East Salem Water District

Comments due: 5 p.m., January 31, 2013

Project location: 3805 La Branch Street, Salem, Marion County

Proposal: No Further Action under Oregon Environmental Cleanup Law ORS 465.200. The site operates as the Suburban East Salem Water District service center, including an administrative office, a community center, and a warehouse. A new building is being constructed north of the administrative offices, the location of a former fire station.

Highlights: Petroleum contamination of soil was suspected when sheen developed on surface water following demolition of the old fire station in November 2011. Multiple phases of assessment were completed to determine the extent of soil contamination for proposed remediation (soil excavation). During trenching and remedial excavation in June 2012, previously unknown concrete septic tanks and a steel tank were found. More soil was removed in October 2012, as contamination remained following the initial excavation. Contaminated soil was excavated to 15 feet below ground surface and taken to Coffin Butte Landfill for disposal. Confirmation samples were collected from the excavation base and petroleum was not detected in soil. Groundwater was not encountered during any site investigation or cleanup activities.

How to comment: Send comments by 5 p.m., January 31, 2013, to DEQ Project Manager Cathy Rodda at 165 E. 7th Avenue, Suite 100, Eugene, OR 97401, by fax 541-686-7551, or by email rodda.cathy@deq.state.or.us.

Comments due: 5 p.m., January 31, 2013

Project location: 410 S Molalla Ave., Oregon City

Proposal: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Leaking Underground Storage Tank Program proposes to issue a no further action determination for the former Tri-Cities Texaco service station site located at 410 S Molalla Ave., Oregon City. DEQ issues a no further action determination when a cleanup has met regulatory standards.

Highlights: The former petroleum service station was operational from 1953 to 1986. The site remains in commercial use as an automotive paint business. Petroleum contamination was first documented at the property in 1986.

Over 2,000 tons of contaminated soil was excavated and transported off-site for treatment. Multiple phases of subsurface investigations have been performed at the property to determine the full extent of soil and groundwater contamination related to the site. Soil and groundwater contamination present at the site were determined by DEQ not to pose a risk to human health or the environment. The LUST Program has determined no further action is required.
