The U.S. EPA said in their latest announcement that the Community Information Session – Updates for the Portland Harbor Superfund Site will take place on January 10, 2018.

During the meeting, EPA will present an overall update on the Portland Harbor Superfund Site that will include an overview of the final site-wide baseline sampling plan that was recently signed with a Pre-Remedial Design group of responsible parties.

The presentation will also include a brief overview of early action area work and general community involvement updates.

Portland Superfund Site

The Portland Harbor Superfund Site in Portland, Oregon, is located within the lower Willamette River from the Broadway Bridge to Kelly Point Park and is the result of decades of industrial use along the Willamette River.

Water and sediment at the Portland Harbor Site are contaminated with many hazardous substances, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), dioxins/furans, pesticides and heavy metals.

These compounds have been found to be harmful to people and the environment. Health risks at the site are great enough for cleanup to be needed under the Superfund law.

EPA and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality are working with potentially responsible parties to clean up contaminated sediment and control sources of contamination.
