Proposed Approval of Environmental Cleanup at Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District at Former Farmington Texaco

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

Project location: 13660 SW Farmington Road, Beaverton, Oregon

Proposal: As required by ORS 465.320 and ORS 465.325(10)(b), the Department of Environmental Quality invites public comment on the remedial action completed at the former Farmington Texaco site and DEQ’s proposal to issue a Conditional No Further Action determination and Certificate of Completion for the site.

Highlights: The site operated as a gas station from 1963 to 1993. Several environmental investigations performed between 1991 and 2010 documented a release of petroleum contamination in soil, groundwater, and soil vapor above DEQ cleanup standards. Remedial actions were performed in October 2012 under the terms of a Consent Judgment Prospective Purchaser Agreement between DEQ and the property owner, Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District. The district plans to redevelop the property for expansion of the adjacent Eichler Park.

The remedial actions included: filing of an Easement and Equitable Servitude restricting groundwater use and construction of habitable structures on the property, disposal of 550 tons of petroleum-contaminated soil, and disposal of 4,500 gallons of petroleum-contaminated groundwater from the northeast corner of the site. An oxygen releasing compound was applied to subsurface soils.

Levels of petroleum remaining at the site soil are below protective levels for recreational park users and park workers. Risk to excavation workers associated with remaining levels of petroleum impacted groundwater and to construction workers from elevated levels of arsenic in subsurface soils in the former waste oil tank area will be managed through adherence to a contaminated media management plan. Soil and groundwater management will also be conducted in accordance with the protocols presented in the plan.

DEQ has concluded that no further action is required at the site under Oregon Environmental Cleanup Law, ORS 465.200 et seq. unless additional information becomes available in the future which warrants further investigation. DEQ proposes to issue and file with the court a Certification of Completion as provided in ORS 465.320 and 465.325(10)(b) confirming satisfactory completion and release from liability to the State of Oregon and third parties.

Proposed Conditional No Further Action for the Odessa Market Site

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

Project location: 28200 Highway 140, Klamath Falls, Oregon

Proposal: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Cleanup Program proposes to issue a conditional no further action determination for the Odessa Mercantile (Market) property (Site) located at 28200 Highway 140 in Klamath County, Oregon. DEQ issues a no further action determination when a cleanup has met regulatory standards.

Highlights: The Site is a retail market and petroleum dispensing facility which had historic releases of petroleum from historic underground storage tanks (USTs). Subsequent work removed and replaced the USTs with above ground tanks ASTs), removed contaminated soil, and treated groundwater at the Site. While limited petroleum contamination is present in shallow soil and groundwater at the Site, the detected concentrations are below applicable exposure pathway levels and are protective of human health and the environment. A recordation of a deed notice institutional control and review and oversight by state agencies will manage any future exposures or development at the property. The Site will remain listed on the DEQ’s Confirmed Release List and Inventory of Hazardous Substances.

To access Site summary information and other documents in DEQ’s Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) database, go to:

http://www.deq.state.or.us/lq/tanks/lust/LustPublicLookup.asp, enter 18-093-0063 in the LUST number box and click “Lookup” at the bottom of the page. Next, click the Log Number. To review the project file, contact the project manager below for a file review appointment.

How to comment: Send comments by 5 p.m., October 30, 2012, to DEQ Project Manager David Anderson by phone at 541-633-2012, by mail at 475 NE Bellevue Dr, Suite 110, Bend OR 97701, by e-mail at andreson.david@deq.state.or.us , or by fax at 541-388-8283.

Public Notice — Cleanup Approval
Former Time Oil NW Terminal, Central Property

Project location and description: The 52-acre former Time Oil Company Northwest Terminal is located at 10350 North Time Oil Road in north Portland. The 13.5-acre Central Property, within the former terminal, is located 400 to 1000 feet inland from the Willamette River. The property was used primarily for fuel storage and distribution from 1943 to 2001, and is currently vacant.

DEQ decision: The Department of Environmental Quality has determined that no further action is needed at the Central Property after reviewing soil cleanup results, and other soil and groundwater data from the Time Oil site and the adjoining off-site property. DEQ determined that residual contamination at the Time Oil Central Property is below risk-based concentrations for humans, fish and wildlife.

This soil cleanup approval and no further action decision for the Central Property is conditioned on maintaining the existing industrial zoning for the site and prohibiting groundwater use. DEQ will prepare an Easement and Equitable Servitude document to be filed with the property deed outlining these conditions.

DEQ considered comments received during the June 2013 public comment period prior to making this determination. This conditional no further action determination does not constitute a Portland Harbor Source Control Decision, which DEQ will evaluate separately.

The project file can be reviewed by appointment at DEQ’s Northwest Region office at 2020 SW 4th Ave., Suite 400, Portland, Oregon 97201. For a file review appointment call 503-229-6729.
