Portland Harbor Superfund is a contaminated 10 mile stretch of the Willamette River stretching from Kelly Point Park to the Broadway Bridge. More than a century of industrial uses left areas of Portland Harbor contaminated with hazardous substances. They include polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), dioxin/furans, and pesticides. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a record of decision about the cleanup of that stretch of the river in January 2017, and cleanup will begin in the next two-three years.
