Proposed Conditional No Further Action
for Tidewater Oil Bulk Plant

Comments due: 5 p.m., Nov. 30, 2011

Project location: 3365 17th St., Baker City

Proposal: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Voluntary Cleanup Program proposes to issue a conditional no further action determination for the former Tidewater Bulk Plant site located at 3365 17th St. in Baker City. DEQ issues a no further action determination when a cleanup has met regulatory standards.

Highlights: The former petroleum bulk plant operated from 1930 to 1967. Petroleum releases were first documented at the site in 2005. Characterization of the nature and extent of contaminants was performed in 2006.

The Voluntary Cleanup Program has reviewed site assessment and remedial activities performed at the site. All of the potential exposure concerns are addressed through elimination during development of the site-specific conceptual site model or through institutional controls in the form of an Easement and Equitable Servitude placed on the site and the adjacent property. The E&ES prohibits beneficial use of groundwater.

Pacific Railroad Derailment Site (RR MP 378)

Comments due: 5 p.m., Nov. 30, 2011

Project location: Railroad milepost 378 near the Weatherby Rest Stop, Baker County

Proposal: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Voluntary Cleanup Program proposes to issue a No Further Action determination for the Union Pacific Railroad derailment site located at railroad milepost 378 near the Weatherby Rest Stop, approximately 15 miles northwest of Huntington in Baker County.

DEQ issues a no further action determination when a cleanup has met regulatory standards.

Highlights: On Dec. 31, 2010, a westbound train hauling box cars of copper concentrate broke a wheel, causing a derailment of 16 cars. Approximately 6,740 pounds of copper concentrate and surface soil was removed from the derailment site and transported to Finley Buttes Regional Landfill for disposal. Confirmation soil sampling performed at both the derailment site and the rail yard have documented cleanup actions are complete.

Proposed No Further Action for
Former A&F Auto Paints Site

Comments due: 5 p.m. Nov. 30, 2011

Project location: 5431 SE McLoughlin Blvd., Portland, OR

Proposal: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality proposes that no further investigative or remedial action is required to address petroleum and volatile organic compound contamination at the former A&F Auto Paints site in Portland. As part of the decision, officially known as a no further action determination, the site will also be delisted from the DEQ Confirmed Release List. DEQ seeks public comment on this proposal.

Highlights: Tests conducted in the mid-1990s found that concentrations of petroleum and other volatile organic compounds in site’s soil and groundwater exceeded protective criteria established by DEQ. The property owners entered into DEQ’s Voluntary Cleanup Program in November 2007 to address the historic petroleum and volatile organic compound contamination. Between November 2007 and June 2011, the owners completed several rounds of soil and groundwater sampling and measured sub-surface soil gas in order to determine the nature and extent of the contamination. Testing showed that volatile organic compounds are not present in soil or groundwater at levels that present a risk to site workers, or nearby residential and commercial properties. Soil gas samples show that there is no vapor intrusion threat to the commercial site or nearby residential properties. Based on these findings, DEQ has determined that no cleanup action is required and that no further investigation is needed.

How to comment: Send comments by 5 p.m., Nov. 30, 2011, to DEQ Project Manager Chuck Harman at DEQ’s Northwest Region Office by mail at 2020 SW Fourth Ave., Suite 400, Portland, OR 97201; by email at harman.charles@deq.state.or.us; or by fax at 503-229-6899

To review the project file, call Dawn Weinberger at 503-229-6729 for an appointment.

Next, click the link labeled ‘1739’ in the Site ID/Info column.

The next step: The DEQ project manager will review all comments received and determine if a no further action determination and delisting from the Confirmed Release List is appropriate. If DEQ receives no comments that warrant delaying a no further action decision, DEQ will issue a final letter confirming the decision.
