The Frontier Hard Chrome (FHC) site has primarily been occupied by two businesses engaged in the chrome plating industry. In 1975, the City of Vancouver determined that chromium in wastewater was upsetting the operation of its new secondary treatment system, and ordered a halt to cease discharges to the sewer system until a treatment system was installed to remove chromium from their waste. At that time, FHC began discharge of their untreated plating wastes to a drywell behind the facility. In 1976, FHC was given a waste water disposal permit for discharge to the drywell by the Washington Department of Ecology. The permit also contained a schedule for completion of a treatment system for their wastes. In 1982, FHC was found to be in violation of the Dangerous Waste Act for the illegal disposal for hazardous wastes, and was ordered to stop discharge of chromium plating wastes to the drywell.Chromium was found in the ground water at more than twice the drinking water standards, and in soil and FHC building structures. The selected remedial actions for this site are delineated.
