Formosa Mine Superfund Site

The BLM, in partnership with EPA and Army Corps of Engineers are working to improve conditions at the Formosa Mine Superfund site. The BLM is committed to keeping public landscapes healthy and productive.

 

Acid mine drainage out of the Formosa Mine Superfund site in Southwest Oregon has been an ongoing problem for many years.

 

The BLM, in partnership with EPA and Army Corps of Engineers are working to reduce acid mine drainage output through adit rehabilitation and installation of a flow-through bulkhead as a key step in reducing impacts to the Middle Creek drainage. The BLM is committed to keeping public landscapes healthy and productive. This removal action will include adit opening, adit rehabilitation, and installation of a flow-through bulkhead by the fall of 2018.
