The 18-acre Joseph Forest Products (JFP) site is a wood-processing facility in the City of Joseph, Wallowa County, Oregon. Land use in the area is predominantly industrial and agricultural. The City of Enterprise uses two springs located 4,000 feet from JFP to serve as its municipal water supply. In 1974, and again from 1977 to 1985, Joseph Forest Products, Inc., used the site as a lumber mill, processing wood into lumber products. The selected remedial action for the site includes demolishing contaminated onsite structures, including the process, storage, and mixing tanks, and the wooden structures and concrete slabs, followed by offsite disposal; decontaminating the concrete drip pad and tanks, followed by recycling or offsite disposal of debris; excavating surface and subsurface soil, with screening and segregation of hazardous waste for offsite disposal, with stabilization, if necessary, prior to disposal at appropriate facilities; backfilling any excavated areas; removing asbestos from the facility, with offsite disposal; removing underground storage tanks and any associated contaminated soil, with scrapping or offsite disposal; monitoring ground water; and implementing institutional controls, including deed and land use restrictions or environmental notices. The estimated capital cost for this remedial action is $550,000, with an annual O&M cost of $24,000 for 3 years.
