Description The Washington State Department of Ecology proposes to issue an Enforcement Order to Cenex Harvest States (CHS) and Union Pacific Railroad Company (UPRR). The Order requires CHS and UPRR, the potentially liable persons (PLPs) to conduct a Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study at the Grain Handling Facility at Freeman site. The investigation will provide answers about the carbon tetrachloride and chloroform contaminants in soil and groundwater, determine sources of the carbon tetrachloride and any other contaminants, and define where contamination is located. The Feasibility Study will identify and evaluate the best methods to clean up the contamination. The draft Enforcement Order, Scope of Work, Public Participation Plan, and State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) checklist and Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) are open for public comment October 1 through November 2, 2015.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
