Bullseye Glass Company manufactures colored art glass in southeast Portland. In January 2016, possibly unsafe levels of arsenic and cadmium were found in the air near the facility. The company also uses chromium +6 (also known as hexavalent chromium) which can be dangerous to health. DEQ is working with the Oregon Health Authority and Multnomah County Health Department to test the air around the company. DEQ is working with the company to bring it into compliance with new regulations for colored glass manufacturing facilities.
