  • Site Description
    Stage of Clean-up: Construction Underway

    Conditions at Proposal (February 7, 1992): The Northwest Pipe & Casing Co. site covers 53 acres in northwest Oregon in Clackamas, Clackamas County. The site is located in an industrial park and is bordered on the west by railroad tracks, on the north by a large grassy field, on the east by another industrial park, and on the south by the Camp Withycombe Oregon National Guard facility. From 1956 to 1985, operations included coating pipes, which involved sandblasting the pipes with steel shot, spraying the pipes with primer, and coating the pipes. Coatings used in the operation included COAL TAR, COAL TAR epoxy, cement mortar, and asphalt. Wastes from these operations were apparently spilled, burned, or buried on-site. A large waste pile of unknown origin is in the northwestern part of the site. EPA's limited sampling at the site, conducted in July 1988, indicated widespread contamination of surficial soil.  More...
