Happened to catch this little snippet from an Oregonian article:

Cleanup is also underway just across the river at the University of Portland's Triangle Park, destined for practice fields, a new baseball stadium and an environmental science laboratory. The site should be clean by Thanksgiving.

I think the Thanksgiving date is news... progress!

I looked over the Triangle Park area last Saturday, and yes, from my untrained eye, it would appear Thanksgiving is a realistic target for completion of the cleanup.

More from the Oregonian article:
The University of Portland's Triangle Park project is relatively straightforward. It includes capping and removing hot spots, pulling concrete and other debris from the riverfront, contouring a more gradual shoreline slope and planting some 15,000 native plants, shrubs, and trees.

The private school bought the 35-acre property from Triangle Park LLC in 2008 for $6 million as a way to expand its 115-acre campus on the bluff overlooking the river. As part of the deal, the university put $3 million into a cleanup trust fund and Triangle Park LLC contributed $1.2 million.

Over the decades, activities on the now-vacant property included lumber milling, concrete packing, ship-building, ironworks and a power plant. Toxics at the site include polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, a probable carcinogen and long-lasting industrial insulator largely banned in the 1970s.

Plans for the "River Campus" include new academic buildings, a new Joe Etzel Field baseball stadium, a practice sports field and a rowing team dock. The timetable, university spokesman Joe Kuffner said, depends on the success of fund-raising.
Note the planned addition of the "rowing team dock." That would be a HUGE boost to the program!

There is also a nice article in today's Catholic Sentinel about the campus expansion and cleanup project. It prominently features Stonehouse pere.

Sorry, no link, as it's not in-line yet.
