OPALCO spent half a million dollars to clean up chemical contaminants in the ground at the old generator plant. Geo Engineers of Redmond, WA was hired to bring the site into compliance with Washington State Department of Ecology standards. Up until the 1970s, PCBs, solvents, and other chemicals were routinely used to help insulate transformers and to do cleaning and maintenance work.
