WEYERHAEUSER CO HG CHLOR ALK

SITE INFORMATION

Read the 2015 review of cleanup site conditions and monitoring

In the mid-1950s, the Weyerhaeuser Company began production of chlorine and caustic for its pulp and paper mills. The production technology used elemental mercury.  Leaks from pumps, valves, and process lines resulted in mercury releases to soils. In the mid-1970s, this production process was replaced.

Over time, Weyerhaeuser has removed mercury-contaminated soils and monitored groundwater.  It also evaluated possible impacts to the nearby Columbia River.  Ecology found the cleanup complete in 2005.

Axiall Corporation currently operates Eagle US 2 LLC at the site, and leases part of the property to Hasa Inc.
