Oregon DEQ and Grabhorn reach agreement for closure of landfill

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Grabhorn Inc. have signed a clean up action settlement agreement to address groundwater contamination and post-closure care at the former Lakeside Reclamation Landfill.

DEQ issued a clean up action decision to address groundwater contamination at the former Lakeside Reclamation Landfill in December 2011.

DEQ signed a settlement with Grabhorn Inc. and Howard Grabhorn which requires the parties to pay DEQ specified amounts to be used to complete the clean up, landfill cover improvements and post-closure maintenance and monitoring.
