NOTICE OF PROPOSED APPROVAL

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.

How to comment: Send comments by 5 p.m., Monday, Sept. 30, 2013 to DEQ Project Manager Rebecca Wells-Albers at 503-229-5585, wells-albers.rebecca@deq.state.or.us, or fax to 503-229-6899.To review the project file, call Dawn Weinberger at 503-229-6729 for a file review appointment.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION

Northwest Pipeline GP
Oregon City, Oregon
Has applied for a Renewal to their Title V Federal Operating Permit
(No. 03-2729)

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has conducted a preliminary review of this application and is providing an opportunity for public comment. Activity at the facility consists of the operation of a natural gas transmission pipeline.  The draft permit renewal decreases the NOx and CO limits, and adds GHGs and PM2.5 as new regulated pollutants. The facility is located in an area designated in attainment for all criteria pollutants, but is within 1 mile of an ozone maintenance area and a CO maintenance area, and is a major source of CO and NOx, which is a precursor of ozone. More information on this facility’s emissions of air pollutants is contained in the review report.

The application, draft permit, review report, and relevant information are available for public review, by appointment, at DEQ’s Northwest Region Office, 2020 SW Fourth Avenue, Suite 400, Portland, Oregon, by calling (503) 229-5582. To obtain a copy of the draft permit call Lynne Kent at (503) 229-5582.

Written comments must be received no later than January 4, 2013, and may be submitted to the DEQ office processing the permit:

Department of Environmental Quality
Lynne Kent/Air Quality Section
2020 SW Fourth Avenue, Suite 400
Portland, OR  97201

If written requests from 10 persons, or an organization representing at least 10 persons, are received on this application, DEQ will provide a public hearing. Requests for hearing need to clearly identify the air quality concerns about the draft permit. Requests for hearing must be in writing and must be received by January 4, 2013.

The Department will review all information received during the public review period.  Following this review, the permit may be modified.  The proposed permit will then be forwarded to EPA for comment prior to issuance.
