List of Potential Polluters

warning: Illegal string offset 'files' in /home/phcag/public_html/modules/upload/upload.module on line 281.

Im August 2011, EPA released its official list of entities potentially responsible for the contamination of the Portland Harbor.   Under CERCLA, these polluters are called Potentially Responsible Parties (PRPs).  This list contains most of the original parties named in the beginning of the Superfund process in 2001.  EPA can add other PRPs to the list after using its information gathering authority to determine the origin of the contamination (see below for a full list of entities receiving an information request from EPA).  Some of the listed PRPs are highlighted and links are provided to more detailed profiles if they are considered a "hot spot" or otherwise will play a large role in the remediation process.  This detailed list is provided to give you an idea of the full magnitude of the Portland Harbor cleanup process and the extensive reach of CERCLA to remediate hazardous sites.  Some of these PRPs are also subject to DEQ oversight of upland/source control measures.


The Lower Willamette Group is a group of 14 PRPs who entered into an adminstrative consent order with EPA to lead the cleanup investigation.  LWG includes: Arkema Inc., Bayer CropScience, Inc., BNSF Railway Co., Chevron USA, Inc., City of Portland, ConocoPhillips Co., Gunderson LLC, Kinder Morgan Liquids Terminals, NW Natural, Evraz Oregon Steel, Port of Portland, Siltronic Corp., TOC Holdings Co, and Union Pacific Railroad Co.


The other PRPs, if ultimately found to be responsible for contaminating the river will likely owe money to the PRPs who are leading the cleanup.  Apportioning shares to each responsible party occurs in the Allocation Process.  Often PRPs will settle with EPA early to avoid paying more over the long-run.
