Union Pacific Railroad La Grande Rail Yard

La Grande, Oregon

Publication: The Observer

Publishing Date: January 1, 7, 14, 21, & 28, 2007

Comment Due: January 31, 2007

Project Location: La Grande, Oregon

Proposal: The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is providing notice for a public opportunity to review and comment on a draft Record of Decision (ROD) and draft Scope of Work (SOW) for the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) La Grande Rail Yard. The draft ROD details the analysis and selection of preferred and protective remedial options designed to address contaminated environmental media at the UPRR La Grande Rail Yard, located near the center of downtown La Grande, Oregon. The draft SOW outlines the activities that will be performed to implement the ROD. The current Consent Decree on record with the Union County Court may be amended with the SOW once finalized.

Current operations at the Rail Yard consist of rail car switching, main line crew change outs, and track maintenance and operations activities. No fueling operations occur at the site. More information concerning site-specific investigations and proposed remedial actions is available by contacting Katie Robertson, DEQ's project manager for this site.

The Administrative File for this facility is archived at the DEQ's Pendleton and The Dalles offices, and can be reviewed in person by contacting the project manager at the number below to arrange for an appointment. Significant portions of the project file are also located at the La Grande Public Library, including the draft DEQ ROD and draft SOW. A copy of the draft Record of Decision and draft Scope of Work may also be obtained by contacting the project manager.

How to Comment: The public comment period will extend from January 1 through January 31, 2007. Please address all comments and/or inquiries to the project manager at the following address:
