Background

The Anchorage Terminal Reserve includes an active rail yard and other properties leased to tenants. The 600-acre area is owned by the Alaska Railroad Corporation and is located near Ship Creek in an industrial area of Anchorage. Both the rail yard and the properties outside the rail yard have had many documented environmental problems. A feasibility study is underway to evaluate cleanup options. The site is not listed on the National Priorities List (NPL) but is considered to be an NPL-caliber site and is being addressed through the Superfund Alternative Approach.
