PORTLAND, ORE. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is asking for public comments on a proposed plan to remove potentially erodible contaminated soils at the U.S. Government Moorings site.
The Moorings is located on the west bank of the Willamette River at River Mile 6.2, within an area identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a Superfund site.  The site is used to berth and maintain Corps dredges and hydrosurvey vessels.
