JORGENSEN FORGE

The Jorgensen Forge facility was scheduled for cleanup as part of the Lower Duwamish River Superfund cleanup. The site is located at 8531 East Marginal Way South in Tukwila, Washington. Originally developed in 1942 by the Navy to produce naval equipment, the property has had a variety of owners over the last seven decades. Currently the facility is owned and operated by the Jorgensen Forge Corporation and is still in use as a steel and aluminum forge for various industrial clients. Jorgensen Forge Corporation will conduct the cleanup with EPA oversight.

DRCC/TAG Recommendations
DRCC/TAG supports EPA’s selection of Alternative 4 which proposes complete removal of all contaminated sediments below the Washington State Sediment standards followed by a clean layer of backfill.
