SITE BACKGROUND

The 240-acre Kaiser Aluminum (Mead Works) site is located near Mead, Washington. From 1942 until 1978, operators at the on-site aluminum reduction facility disposed of pot linings in the northwestern section of the plant property. Site operations and waste disposal practices contaminated soil, sludge and groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Remedy construction is underway.
