DEQ holds hearing on Grabhorn landfill cleanup

Construction debris from landfill contaminated groundwater near Tualatin River

The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality will hold an Aug. 23 hearing on the proposed cleanup plan for the former Grabhorn Inc. landfill in Beaverton. The 37-acre Lakeside Reclamation Landfill, once operated by Grabhorn Inc., closed in 2009. Operations at the construction debris landfill wound up contaminating groundwater near the Tualatin River.

The hearing takes place at Beaverton City Hall, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23.
