Cleanup Sites


The Portland Harbor Joint Source Control Strategy identifies, evaluates and prioritizes upland sources of contamination that are affecting or may affect the Willamette River in the Portland Harbor area.

Watch the Portland Harbor Source Control video to learn about what’s been done to control contaminants along the riverbanks. This work ensures that once the cleanup of the riverbed sediment begins, the river will not be re-contaminated.
