Purpose

The Port of Everett and other potentially liable parties (PLPs) are currently under an Agreed Order with the Department of Ecology for the Ameron Hulbert site. This site is being evaluated to determine the nature and extent of contamination from historic industrial site use. Several significant cleanup actions have occurred at this site since 2006.

In 2013, an emergency cleanup action was conducted on a primary stormwater pipe to remove toxic sediment and prepare it for future upgrades that will better protect the environment. The Port and other PLPs will enter a Consent Decree with the Department of Ecology in 2014 to reach a final cleanup agreement. The final cleanup of this site will occur by 2017.

Cleanup Benefits
This environmental cleanup project helps to stimulate the local economy by bringing immediate jobs throughout the cleanup process, opening doors for redevelopment upon completion, and creating a cleaner environment for the community. The project provides safer public access, increases the amount of opportunities for future land use and redevelopment, and greatly improves the environmental quality of the area.
