PROPOSAL: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality proposes to approve
of cleanup actions performed by the U.S. Forest Service and Oregon Department
of Transportation to remove arsenic, petroleum hydrocarbons, pentachlorophenol,
dioxins, and furans from soil at the Sisters Forest Service Compound site. The
proposed approval is also known as a no further action determination.
HIGHLIGHTS: The site consists of various Forest Service buildings on 80 acres
dating back to the 1950s. ODOT also occupies six acres of the site with a
maintenance shop and sand shed. The Forest Service and ODOT, in preparation for
sale of the property, conducted several soil cleanup actions over the last few
years. These soil excavation and disposal cleanup actions addressed the
following pollutants at the site: arsenic in a burn pile; petroleum
hydrocarbons at a chainsaw maintenance area; pentachlorophenol (a wood treatment

PROPOSAL: Pursuant to Oregon Revised Statute, ORS 465.320, the Department
of Environmental Quality (DEQ) issues this notice regarding completion of
cleanup actions performed at the subject property pursuant to a Prospective
Purchaser Agreement (PPA) issued in December 2005 in the form of a Stipulation

HIGHLIGHTS: The North Portland Road, LLC (NPR) Site is an approximately
15-acre parcel. The Site is also known as the South Larsen Site and is
separated from the Columbia Slough by the approximate 22-acre parcel known as
North Larsen, currently owned by the City of Portland.
The Site has been used for
trucking and transportation-related uses since the mid 1960s, included truck
maintenance and tanker truck cleaning. Environmental testing at the site prior
to the PPA identified releases of metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, volatile
organic compounds (VOCs), phenols, phthalates,
pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and cyanide. A chlorinated
solvent plume in groundwater was also identified.
The Consent Judgment required: a
payment into a DEQ fund for investigation and remedial actions in the Columbia
Slough sediments, investigation and cleanup of surface soils, stormwater system improvements to protect the Slough from
future releases, treatment of the chlorinated solvent plume source area,
assessment of the on-site water supply well and evaluation of other groundwater
beneficial uses, and a risk evaluation for worker exposure to solvent vapors,
and installation of engineering and institutional controls as necessary.
NPR has satisfactorily completed
the investigation and cleanup work required by the agreement and no further
remedial actions are required at the Site to protect public health, safety, and
welfare of the environment. The proposed certification decision would be
conditioned on: undertaking site management decisions in accordance with the
DEQ-approved Site Management Plan.
