This site was home to the former Wagstaff Battery Recycling facility. Known to have significant lead contamination, the site is included in the DEQ Environmental Cleanup Site Information database.  Although approximately 362 tons of lead contaminated soil had been removed before Port City purchased the site, additional assessments were needed because of concern about remaining lead from former operations.  The Brownfield Program provided Phase I and Phase II site assessments to fully delineate the contamination to that affects soils and structural remnants could be removed. 

after cleanup, a local nonprofitPort City Development - a nonprofit provider of life skills training and services for developmentally disadvantaged individuals - redeveloped this former batter recycling site into office space, a training facility, and housing units for their clients.
