City of Portland looking for your views on the Portland Harbor Superfund site cleanup

Next month, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will announce a proposed plan to clean up the Portland Harbor Superfund site in the Willamette River north of downtown Portland, a process that will affect all Portlanders.

Once the proposed plan is released, the City will submit a formal response. In preparation for that response, the City wants to hear from you. Please take a moment to share and your priorities and values for the cleanup of the Portland Harbor site through an online survey at Oregon’s Kitchen Table.

This anonymous survey, developed with the help of key stakeholders, is your opportunity to share what you value most about the cleanup. The survey will be open through March 31. After it closes, responses will be compiled by Oregon’s Kitchen Table, and results will be shared with the community later this spring.

If you can’t take the online survey, you can call Sarah Giles at 503-725-5248 to request a hard copy to fill out and return. The survey is available in five languages.

After the survey closes, the public will also be able to participate in EPA’s public comment period this spring. EPA’s record of decision, the final cleanup plan, is expected this December.
