The Blue North Mill Site is located on the Nez Perce Reservation in Kamiah, Idaho. The site was purchased by the Nez Perce Tribe in December 2017. A Phase I ESA was completed before purchase. Due to the complex history and possible contamination identified in the Phase I assessment, a Preliminary Phase II assessment is being contracted with Alta Science & Engineering. A Phase II ESA will need to be completed before site clean-up and redevelopment can commence. The Groundwater Program is occassionaly providing and helping to coordinate OSHA 40-hr HAZWOPER trainings to help develop a tribal workforce that will be able to work on this site once the environmental assessments have been completed.
