EPA Superfund Program: BOOMSNUB/AIRCO, VANCOUVER, WA

Superfund Site Profile

The 49-acre Boomsnub/Airco site is located in a light industrial and residential area of Vancouver, Washington. The site includes two facilities, the former Boomsnub Corporation (Boomsnub) chrome-plating facility and the Linde facility. Linde owns and operates an industrial gas production facility next to the Boomsnub property. Between 1967 and 1994, metal plating operations and improper waste disposal practices contaminated soil and groundwater with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and chromium. Remedy construction is underway.
