The site consists of two parcels totaling 6.24 acres. Two buildings are currently on the site, one on the Yakima Steel Fabricators parcel and is used for steel fabrication and the other is on the Agri-Tech property and is leased by Yakima Steel Fabricators for steel fabrication. Past activities at the site have included the formulation of lime, sulfur, fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and mineral oil. A fruit-packing supply and equipment company also previously operated at the site.
A Remedial Investigation (RI) was done in June 2004. The RI outlines exposure pathways and contaminants of concern. The Feasibility Study outlines cleanup alternatives and proposes a chosen cleanup method. This site contains several chemicals that are harmful to human health and the environment.
