I purchased a former leather tannery and battery manufacturing plant in Sherowod, Oregon under a "Prospective Purchaser Agreement" with the Oregon DEQ. This report is the final remediation report on many aspects of the environmental cleanup. We removed chromium contaminated soils and leather hide splits, lead contaminated soil from 300,000 battery casings that caught fire in the late 1960's, arsenic soils and concrete, benzine, and many other toxic substances I can't even pronounce. Some of the debris had to be hauled to a hazardous waste facility in S.E. Idaho.
I received a No Further Action determination from the Oregon DEQ for the extensive work that was performed under their supervision. Would I do this kind of project again? No way. But I am proud of the accomplishment and what it did for the community that I live in.
