Media Affected: Soil & Sludges
Asbestos, oil containing PCBs, flammable materials, and volatile organic compounds were found at the junkyard. High levels of PCBs and lead were found in soils over the entire site. Contaminants could migrate to the groundwater beneath the site. Exposure to contaminants could occur through contact with, and ingestion of, contaminated soil.

Hide details for Cleanup ProgressCleanup Progress

Early Actions: From 1987 to 1989, as part of an emergency action at the site, EPA transported 8,000 cubic yards of lead- and PCB-contaminated soil, 125,000 pounds of hazardous liquid and solid waste, and 140 cubic yards of asbestos to regulated landfills. Hazardous materials removed from the site included oils containing PCBs, flammable materials, corrosive materials, and chlorinated organic compounds.

In the Summer of 1995, under an EPA Administrative Order, three of the site potentially responsible parties (PRPs), Kaiser Aluminum, Washington Water Power, and Inland Power and Light, completed an Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis. In the Fall of 1996, the PRPs, under an EPA Administrative Order, performed an early cleanup action. Contaminated soil was excavated, treated through chemical stabilization, and consolidated in an on-site containment cell. Cleanup was completed in December 1996. The site was deleted from the National Priorities List (NPL) in September, 1997.

Since deletion, the site has been purchased by the Spokane Youth Sports Association . The Association built a sports complex on the property. The on-site containment cell was paved over and is the parking lot for the complex. The project received the 2003 Phoenix Award for Brownfield Redevelopment.
