Hazardous Sites in Oregon
wahchangweb

Hazardous sites are places where there is known chemical contamination. Some examples include Superfund sites like the Portland Harbor, abandoned mines, chemical manufacturing plants or brownfields. They can also include places where there has been a chemical spill, or an abandoned clandestine drug lab.

There are several programs in the Environmental Public Health Section that work to keep Oregonians safe from the contamination of hazardous sites, while working to reduce their presence overall in the state.
