US DOE BPA Ross Complex
5411 NE Hwy 99, Vancouver, WA 98666

The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) Ross complex is part of the Department of Energy control center for electricity throughout the Pacific Northwest. BPA’s dangerous waste management facility is located on a 250-acre property in Vancouver, Washington. Past activities at BPA resulted in soil and groundwater contamination.
In 1989, EPA listed BPA as a Superfund Site because of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in groundwater near the City of Vancouver’s drinking water supply. Cleanup activities included

  • soil excavation, treatment, and capping;
  • redevelopment safeguards; 
  • monitoring the natural movement of contaminants in the groundwater.  

In 1995, EPA conducted an inspection of the facility and determined that the cleanup was successful. The site is continually monitored and contaminants remain within acceptable levels.
