Superfund Site Profile

The 2.5-acre United Chrome Products, Inc. site is a former chrome-plating facility in an industrial complex next to Corvallis Municipal Airport near Corvallis, Oregon. The company conducted electroplating operations from 1956 to 1985. Plating wastes were discharged into a dry well. The indoor plating tanks leaked plating solution directly to subsurface soils. Groundwater, surface water, sediments and on-site soils were contaminated with chromium. Following cleanup, operation and maintenance activities and monitoring are ongoing.
