PUBLIC NOTICE
DEQ Notice of Prospective Purchaser Agreement with City of Vale

Project location: Former Goodman Oil Service Station & Bulk Plant, 252 N Glenn St., Vale

Project Summary: The Department of Environmental Quality has entered into a prospective purchaser agreement with the City of Vale to facilitate the donation of the property to the city and the future redevelopment of the property. This prospective purchaser agreement will result in a substantial public benefit through the redevelopment of a blighted commercial property located in a key gateway area.

A gasoline service station and petroleum bulk plant operated on the property from the1950s to 2002. Petroleum releases from the service station contaminated soil and groundwater. DEQ was initially notified of the contamination in 2002. DEQ has performed multiple phases of investigations at the property since 2010 to determine the extent of contamination. Additional investigations are currently being performed by DEQ.

The prospective purchaser agreement requires the City of Vale to place institutional controls on the property if determined to be necessary by DEQ, to actively work with DEQ to seek grant funding to complete cleanup actions, to retain ownership of the property until cleanup actions are completed, and to reimburse a portion of DEQ’s costs from the proceeds of the future sale of the property.

The prospective purchaser agreement provides the City of Vale with a release from liability for claims by the State of Oregon under Oregon Revised Statute ¦465.255 relating to any historical releases of hazardous substances at or from the property. DEQ retains all existing rights it may have as to all other parties potentially liable for any releases.

The prospective purchaser agreement is a tool that facilitates the beneficial reuse of contaminated property and its cleanup and encourages property transactions that would otherwise not likely occur because of the liabilities associated with purchasing contaminated property. The prospective purchaser program was created in 1995 through amendments to the state’s environmental cleanup law. DEQ has approved over 100 prospective purchaser agreements throughout the State.

Additional Information: For additional information on the project contact the Project Manager, Katie Robertson by phone at 541-278-4620 or by e-mail at Robertson.Katie@deq.state.or.us. For additional information on the prospective purchaser program contact the Program Coordinator, Cheyenne Chapman by phone at 503-229-6461 or by email at Chapman.Cheyenne@deq.state.or.us. Additional information on the program is also available at www.deq.state.or.us/lq/cu/ppa.htm.

A CHANCE TO COMMENT ON
PROSPECTIVE PURCHASER AGREEMENT CONSENT JUDGMENT,
CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION FOR GABLES PARTNERS, LLC

COMMENTS DUE: Wednesday, October 31, 2012

PROJECT LOCATION: The property is located at 1025-1045 NW 9th Street, Corvallis, Oregon.

PROPOSAL: Pursuant to Oregon Revised Statute ORS 465.320, ORS 465.325(10) and ORS 465.327, the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) issues this notice regarding completion of work item actions performed at the subject property pursuant to a Prospective Purchaser Agreement (PPA) issued in October 14, 2010 in the form of a Consent Judgment (Benton County Circuit Court Case Number 10-10563). The DEQ will consider public comments prior to issuing Certification of Completion.

HIGHLIGHTS: The property was used as a residence and as the Sunny Brook Diary processing facility from 1948 to 1995. Several leaking underground storage tanks (LUSTs) were located on the property and were removed beginning in 1991. The site was characterized and determined to contain total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) contamination of soil and groundwater. Following documented removal and remedial activities by a previous owner of the property, DEQ issued in 2004 a conditional No Further Action determination for the removed tanks; however, DEQ subsequently found that the consulting firm, UST Environmental Services, Inc., had submitted fraudulent environmental reports to DEQ and this called into question the accuracy of the removal work at the Site. Gables Partners, LLC, acting as a prospective purchaser of the property, engaged Hart Crowser as its environmental consultant, and completed Phase I and Phase II Environmental Assessment reports for the Site. Under the terms of the PPA, Gables Partners agreed to: (1) conduct any work involving excavation according to a DEQ approved worker health and safety plan; (2) decommission one remaining UST on site by removal; (3) evaluate, sample and manage any TPH-related contamination that may be found, if the existing on-site building(s) is demolished; and (4) enter into an Easement and Equitable Servitude (EES) to manage human health and environmental threats posed by groundwater contamination through restrictions on groundwater use. On August 9, 2012, Gables Partners requested DEQ to issue a Certification of Completion, based on Gable Partners, LLC’s satisfactory completion of all work items specified in the PPA.

DEQ reviewed the conditions stated in the PPA and the corresponding remedial actions:

1) The only excavation work done on-site during this period was by the contractor who removed the UST heating oil tank. This contractor is required to have their own Health and Safety Plan to do this type of work. As a condition of the Certificate of Completion document, if buildings are removed in the future a Health and Safety Plan is required.

2) The underground heating oil tank was decommissioned by removal as required. The UST removal work was documented in the February 8, 2011, UST decommissioning report submitted to DEQ by Gables Partners, LLC.

3) No buildings were removed and no contamination was discovered during this period of time. However, if future site redevelopment requires demolition of existing building(s), all TPH-related contamination needs to be properly evaluated, sampled, managed and disposed of in accordance with DEQ’s rules.

4) An Easement and Equitable Servitude (EES) was signed and recorded with Benton County on February 1, 2011.

The applicable requirements of the Consent Judgment have been satisfied. Requirements that may become applicable in the future are included in the Certificate of Completion document.

PROPOSED APPROVAL OF THE CLEANUP OF A PHENOL SPILL,
GEORGIA-PACIFIC RESINS EUGENE, OREGON

COMMENTS DUE : October 31, 2012

PROJECT LOCATION: 2665 Hwy North, Eugene

PROPOSAL: In accordance with Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 465, et seq., the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is proposing approval of the cleanup of a phenol spill that occurred at the Georgia-Pacific Resins site, located at 2665 Hwy 99 North, Eugene, Oregon. DEQ’s Environmental Cleanup Program is proposing to issue a determination that no further action is required for investigation or cleanup of the spill. A public review period is required under ORS 465.320.

HIGHLIGHTS: On February 16, 2012 approximately 600 pounds of molten phenol was spilled during unloading from a rail car. The phenol quickly solidified, but residual phenol contaminated stormwater runoff from the spill site and some soil in a drainage ditch. The spill was reported to Oregon Emergency Response and was cleaned up under DEQ’s oversight. Contaminated soil was removed from the ditch and disposed of appropriately. Contaminated surface water was recycled or disposed of at an appropriate off-site facility. Stormwater quality at the site, including monitoring of phenol concentrations, will continue to be regulated under an NPDES permit, and remains under the pervue of DEQ’s Water Quality Program.

A file containing detailed information for the site is available for review in DEQ’s office located in Suite 100 at 165 East 7th Avenue in Eugene.

Request for Comments
Proposed Cleanup Plan for the Former Multnomah Metals Property

Comments due: Oct. 31, 2012

Project location: 236 SW Flower Street, Portland, OR

Proposal: The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) invites public comment on a proposed cleanup plan for the property.

Highlights: The former Multnomah Metals Company operated a secondary lead smelting facility at the project location from the early 1920s to the mid-1960s. A large building at this location was used as a foundry to melt and recycle lead, solder and other scrap metal. The building was demolished in 1975, and a new residential dwelling was constructed on the property in 1976.

Environmental investigations have identified lead and arsenic concentrations in soil that exceed DEQ screening values over most of the property. The proposed cleanup includes a combination of removing highly concentrated lead-contaminated soil, relocating less contaminated soil within the property, and placement of an engineered hardscape to physically contain and prevent direct contact with all remaining contaminated soil exceeding DEQ risk-based concentrations.

How to comment: Details regarding the proposed remedy can be found at http://www.deq.state.or.us/lq/cu/nwr/multnomahmetals.htm. Send comments no later than 5 p.m., October 31, 2012 to DEQ Project Manager Scott Manzano at2020 SW 4th Ave. Suite 400, Portland, Oregon, 97213, Email: manzano.scott@deq.state.or.us or fax: 503 229-6899. To review project records, contact Dawn Weinburger for an appointment at (503) 229-5425 and ask for records for Environmental Cleanup Site Information (ECSI) site #3274. To access site summary information and other documents, go to DEQ’s on-line ECSI database at: http://www.deq.state.or.us/lq/ECSI/ecsi.htm, enter 3274 in the Site ID box, and click “Submit” at the bottom of the page. Next, click the link labeled 3274 in the Site ID/Info column.

DEQ will conduct a public meeting on October 24, 2012 at 2020 SW 4th Ave. Suite 400, Portland, Oregon at 6:00 p.m. to discuss the proposed remedy. DEQ will also present results of its neighborhood assessment for lead in soil at properties nearby the former smelter property.

The next step: DEQ will consider all comments received and make a final decision on the proposed site remedy after consideration of these comments.

Proposed Sediment Cleanup for Warrenton Boat Yard

Comments due: 5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct.30, 2012

Project location: Warrenton Boat Yard, 101 NE Harbor Street, Warrenton, Oregon

Proposal: Warrenton Boat Yard is a small operating boat yard that has provided routine boat maintenance and repair services since 1946. The site is located approximately 1.5 miles upstream from Young’s Bay on the west side of the Skipanon Waterway. Historic operations at the boat yard led to releases of metals, polychlorinated biphenyls, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and pesticides to site sediments of the Skipanon Waterway.

Based on results of environmental investigations and potential cleanup options, DEQ recommends the following cleanup actions to address contamination present in sediments at the site:

• Excavation of hot spot sediments near the shoreline

• Off-site disposal of excavated sediments in a RCRA Subtitle D Landfill

• Installation of a sediment cap if necessary based on confirmation testing results

• Institutional controls

• Operation and maintenance of the cap

Highlights: Remedial investigation work was completed in 2009. The risk assessment for the investigation identified two potential scenarios that create unacceptable risk at the site:

• Eating fish exposed to impacted sediment

• Exposure of sediment dwelling organisms to impacted sediment

Cleanup of sediments is necessary to reduce these risks to human health and the environment. Cleanup alternatives were evaluated starting in 2010. In 2012, new financial constraints necessitated that the recommended remedial alternative be changed to include installation of a sediment cap in addition to dredging of contaminated sediments.

How to comment: Send comments by 5 p.m., Oct, 30, 2012, to DEQ Project Manager Anna Coates at 2020 SW 4th Avenue, Suite 400, Portland, Oregon 97201 503)-229-5213 or by email at coates.anna@deq.state.or.us.

Proposed Approval of Cleanup for Northwest Tractor Parts & Equipment

COMMENTS DUE: Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012

PROJECT LOCATION: 26180 SE Highway 212, Boring

PROPOSAL: The Department of Environmental Quality is proposing to issue a No Further Action determination based on the results of an amended Phase II Soil Investigation and Remediation Report completed on August 8, 2012 for the Northwest Tractor Parts and Equipment facility near Boring. DEQ is proposing that no further investigation or cleanup be required at the site because residual contamination does not exceed acceptable risk levels as defined in Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) 465.315.

HIGHLIGHTS: Northwest Tractor Parts is a construction equipment salvage and maintenance facility located on the south side of Highway 212 between the east Damascus city limits and Boring. Investigation and cleanup of petroleum-contaminated soils at the facility was conducted from February to August 2012. Approximately 520 tons of visibly-contaminated soil was removed and shipped to the Hillsboro Landfill for disposal. The contamination generally extended less than one foot below ground surface, although some excavations extended up to 9? feet deep. Residual soil contamination at the facility does not exceed DEQ’s current, applicable risk-based standards.

HOW TO COMMENT: The project file may be reviewed by appointment at DEQ’s Northwest Region Office at 2020 SW 4th Avenue, Suite 400, Portland, OR 97201.

Proposed Conditional No Further Action for the Bear Mountain Forest Products Facility Site

Comments due: 5 p.m., October 30, 2012

Project location: 34363 Lake Creek Drive, Brownsville, Oregon

Proposal: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Voluntary Cleanup Program proposes to issue a conditional no further action determination for the Bear Mountain Forest Products property (Site) located at 34363 Lake Creek Drive in Brownsville. DEQ issues a no further action determination when a cleanup has met regulatory standards.

Highlights: The Site is an active wood products processing facility which had historic releases of phenolic resins from an on-site pond and petroleum releases from processing equipment. Investigations did not identify any resin contamination, but did indentify limited petroleum contamination in soil and shallow groundwater at the Site. The detected concentrations are below applicable exposure pathway levels and are protective of human health and the environment. A contaminated media management plan and the recordation of a deed notice institutional control 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.

PUBLIC COMMENT REQUESTED ON A PROPOSED NO FURTHER ACTION
FOR THE COOS HEAD AREA OF CONCERN (AOC) D AND AREA OF CONCERN (AOC) C OUTFALL 2
CONTAMINANTS OF CONCERN LOCATED AT 63379 COOS HEAD ROAD, COOS BAY, OREGON

Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) invites public comment on a proposed No Further Action (NFA) determination for a cleanup of soil and groundwater contamination at the Area of Concern D (AOC-D) and Area of Concern C (AOC-C) Outfall 2 Contaminants of Concern. These two AOCs represent portions of the former Air National Guard (ANG) Base, located at 63379 Coos Head Road, Coos Bay, Oregon. Most of the Coos Head Site is owned by Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians, but was administered by the U.S. military from the mid-19th century until recently. The portion of the site known as AOC-D is owned by the U.S. Navy. ODEQ has completed a review of the Interim Removal Action Report for soils at AOC-D and the Sampling Results for AOC-C- Outfall 2 Soil Sampling and found them to be in compliance with ODEQ’s requirements for the U.S. Navy’s clean up of these two AOCs.

Contamination in soil at AOC-D appeared to be from releases of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) as a result of a pole-mounted electrical transformer that caught fire and exploded in 1970. The explosion released PCBs to the soil surface. Dioxins, which are often found together with PCBs, were also detected in the soil but at low levels.

Soil excavation at AOC-D led to the disposal of 392 tons of contaminated soil at the Coffin Butte Landfill. Soil was removed to an approximate depth of 3 feet below ground surface (bgs) throughout the excavation area.

The U.S. Navy installed a non-woven geotextile delineation fabric at the 3-foot bgs level after confirmation sampling was conducted at AOC-D. Approximately 544 tons of backfill and topsoil were placed, compacted, and graded with excavation equipment and landscaped with grass seeds above the delineation fabric. Gravel was placed around the perimeter of the excavation area adjacent to the asphalt road pavement. Confirmation samples show that this remedial action was successful for removing PCB-related contaminants and dioxins.

AOC-D is next to an ongoing cleanup of fuel contamination being conducted by the ANG, It is the responsibility of the ANG to address any fuel or other contamination of the soil under the geotextile installed by the U.S. Navy at AOC-D. Sediments in an area downstream from AOC D, known as AOC-C Outfall 2, were sampled for PCB-related contaminants and dioxins. These contaminants measured below the ODEQ’s levels of concern.

These two (2) proposed NFAs apply only to AOC-D and AOC-C Outfall 2 Contaminants of Concern for PCB-related contaminants and dioxins. Non-PCB-related contaminants found at AOC-C Outfall 2 will be addressed at a later date by ANG.

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. Please send written comments to Norman Read at the listed above address or via email at read.norm@deq.state.or.us. DEQ must receive written comments by 5 p.m., October 31, 2012.

DEQ PROPOSES NO FURTHER ACTION
AT CERTAIN TEED FACILITY, WHITE CITY, OREGON

COMMENTS DUE: October 31, 2012

PROJECT LOCATION: 1200 Avenue G, White City, Oregon

PROPOSAL: DEQ proposes to approve the cleanup conducted at the Certain-Teed facility in White City. DEQ requests public comment on its recommendation that no further investigation or cleanup action is required for petroleum-contaminated soil on this property.

BACKGROUND: DEQ’s proposed NFA determination applies to Tax Lot #219, T36S, R1W, S18. For detailed project information please see a copy of the final project report on DEQ’s website at: http://www.deq.state.or.us/Webdocs/Forms/Output/FPController.ashx?SourceIdType=11&SourceId=5131&Screen=Load

During construction activities in the mid-2000s, two areas were found in which the oil is used to lubricate the molds in which the siding is pressed had been released to soils. One area was excavated and remediated in 2003, and the other area was excavated and remediated in 2007. Confirmation sampling of soil in both excavations and groundwater show that no contaminants of potential concern are present above appropriate risk-based screening levels.

In the absence of unacceptable risks, DEQ recommends that no further action be required.

HOW TO COMMENT: Written comments must be received by October 31, 2012. Comments should be submitted to DEQ’s Eugene office, 165 East 7th Street, Eugene, OR 97401 or by e-mail at sadofsky.sethg@deq.state.or.us. Questions may also be directed to Seth Sadofsky at the Eugene address or by calling him at 1-800-844-8467 ext 7329.

THE NEXT STEP: DEQ will consider all public comments before taking final action on this matter. A public meeting will be held to receive verbal comments on the proposed cleanup action upon written request by ten or more persons, or by a group with ten or more members.
