Boomsnub-AIRCO | Region 10 | US EPA

Jump to main content.


The Boomsnub/Airco Superfund Site includes a former chrome-plating facility and the currently operating BOC Gases plant located at 7608 NE 47th Street in Vancouver, WA. Hexvalent chromium and volatile organic compounds mingled in a contamination plume in the groundwater. EPA added the site to its National Priorities List in 1995 and issued a Record of Decision for soil and groundwater cleanup in 2000.

Most of the pollution has been removed since the cleanup started in the mid-1990’s and human exposure is under control. EPA will continue to pump and treat the groundwater for many years until it meets drinking water standards.
