    Stage of Clean-up: Study Underway

    In order to address the long-term threat to surface water, sediments, residential soils, and air, the EPA is proposing this site to the NPL. The Taylor Lumber and Treating site is an active wood processing and treating business located approximately 1 mile west of Sheridan, Oregon. The wood treating facility began operating in autumn 1966. The wood treating facility's primary functions are to condition and pressure-treat wood products with preservatives in order to prolong the useful life of the products. Wood products treated at the facility include lumber, poles, pilings, posts, railroad ties, and plywood. Wood preserving chemicals, which historically have been used at this facility and are still in use, include petroleum-based CREOSOTE and PENTACHLOROPHENOL (PCP) solutions. The wood treating chemicals are stored in aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) located in two separate tank farms. On February 26, 1999, EPA responded to a discharge of approximately 3,500 gallons of 5-percent PCP-enriched P-9 oil from the P-9 tank farm. An oily sheen was observed on the South Yamhill River during this incident.  More...
