Railroad yard cleanup dead in its tracks

Union Pacific derailed its 2017 railroad yard cleanup plan months after the years-in-the-making project was approved, citing a new federal study which revises toxicity parameters for one of the main contaminants at the site.

Union Pacific has requested a re-evaluation that an Oregon Department of Environmental Quality specialist said might result in either a much smaller cleanup project or no project at all.
