Barge builder to help clean Portland riverfront

PORTLAND, Ore. — Zidell Marine Corp. will soon begin a $20 million repair project on a stretch of the Willamette River along the Portland waterfront.

The project is expected to take about four months and will renew the shoreline, cap and remove dangerous contaminants, restore wildlife habitat, create a 100-foot wide greenway and prepare about 30 acres of prime real estate for development, according to an article in The Oregonian.

The company will cover most of the costs, but some may be covered by insurance, which is currently in litigation.

The cleanup will be under the eye for the state’s Department of Environmental Quality.
