Redevelopment at the Site

The Vancouver Water Station #1 Contamination Superfund Site consists of several wells and a drinking water treatment system located within Waterworks Park, Vancouver, Washington. Throughout the Site’s history, the City of Vancouver has pumped water from the on-site production wells and distributed it to customers as drinking water. Since 1993, the water has been treated prior to distribution. The City expects to continue to use the water pumped at WS1 as part of their drinking water supply system.

A forested park with a gazebo, picnic shelter and skate park have been developed on the land surrounding the WS1 Wells and treatment system. It is commonly used for recreation and urban wildlife viewing.
