The Gould site is located in a heavily industrial area of Portland, Oregon, approximately 1.3 miles southeast of St. John's Bridge. The site is contained in a 60-acre study area consisting of the Gould property and outlying areas containing battery casings and other residues from site operations. Between 1949 and 1981, various owners operated the site as a secondary lead smelting facility specializing in lead-acid battery recycling, lead-smelting and refining, zinc alloying and casting, cable sweating, and lead oxide production. Operations ceased in August 1981. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and sediments are lead and lead oxide. The selected remedial action for the soils unit at the site include: excavation of all battery casing fragments and matte from the Gould property and adjacent contaminated areas; a phased design program to determine the amount of material that can be recycled, and to minimize the amount of material that must be RCRA landfilled.
