SITE BACKGROUND

The 90-acre Burlington Northern Livingston Shop Complex (BNLSC) site is located in Livingston in Park County, Montana. In 1883, the Northern Pacific Railroad (NPRR) constructed a rail yard at the site, which by the early 1900s had expanded to include a passenger depot, machine shops, a turntable, a roundhouse and a powerhouse. Historical rail yard operations contaminated soil and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities are ongoing.
