About the Project

The Port of Everett is under an Agreed Order with the Department of Ecology since 2009 for the development of a Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS) and Cleanup Action Plan. In an effort to expedite the cleanup actions required for this site, the Port conducted an Interim Cleanup Action on the upland portion of the site that includes the removal and disposal of approximately 9,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil.

With this interim action complete, the remaining cleanup requirements for this site are limited to off-shore sediment cleanup actions. The Port is working to finalize the RI/FS report and Cleanup Action Plan and plans enter into a Consent Decree with the Department of Ecology in 2015 to begin design of the in-water cleanup portion of the site.

Cleanup Benefits

This cleanup project is an example of the Port’s environmental stewardship and determination to create a cleaner waterfront. The cleanup of this property will allow for development and economic growth opportunities to occur at this site. The cleanup will also facilitate future public access to the shoreline area. This project provides clean land for future development, provides the community cleaner and safer public access, and creates opportunities for economic revitalization in the area.
