Agrium Kennewick Fertilizer Operations
We regulate water and hazardous waste activities for the three Agrium Kennewick Fertilizer Operations facilities.
Located at 227515 Bowles Road in Kennewick, this facility produces about 18,000 tons of "product" nitric acid and about 170,000 tons of liquid nitrogen fertilizer solution. It has the ability to produce granular nitrate.
- Uses water from, and sends it back to, the Columbia River. About 6 percent of the water is used in the fertilizer-making process and for refrigeration. Approximated 94 percent is used as non-contact cooling water.
- Recovers groundwater containing fertilizer components from six onsite wells and uses the water to irrigate offsite croplands.
The Benton Clean Air Agency regulates the facility's air quality activities. Visit the Benton Clean Air Agency website or call 509-783-1304 for more information.
