Historical Project Timeline


About the Project

The Port of Everett, under a Consent Decree with the Department of Ecology, is executing a final cleanup action at the Former Everett Shipyard site that removes contaminated soil from the upland area and removes  contaminated sediment from the in-water sediments.

This project includes building demolition, contaminated soil excavation, marine demolition, stormwater improvements, removal and replacement of a bulkhead, and contaminated sediment dredging. The Port is integrating this work with the Waterfront Place Central development, including bulkhead replacements, realignment of the marina, and construction of new public access amenities.

Cleanup Benefits

This environmental cleanup project provides jobs throughout the cleanup process and revitalizes the area for redevelopment that will facilitate economic stability and vitality of the Port of Everett waterfront.

This project is the first major step toward the redevelopment of Waterfront Place Central. It provides a cleaner waterfront that the entire Everett community can enjoy and opens the door for further investment to create economic opportunities.
