In November 1999, Ecology and the Seattle Art Museum entered into a Prospective Purchaser Consent Decree to clean-up and redevelop the former Unocal Seattle Marketing Terminal site into an outdoor sculpture park and open space area. 

In December 2002, the Prospective Purchaser Consent Decree was amended in order to add the Museum Development Authority as a new party to the decree.

The Museum Development Authority plans to lease the site from the Seattle Art Museum and perform ongoing cleanup work in accordance with the decree. 

The Amendment is available for review at the following locations:

Consent Decree Available for Public Review & Comment - Tiger Oil 24th Ave & W Nob Hill, Facility Site ID No. 469, 2312 W. Nob Hill Blvd., Yakima, 98902, Yakima County

Ecology and Mercy Development Company are proposing a Consent Decree to expand an existing soil vapor extraction system that resides on the Mercy property.  Mercy and other properties adjacent to the Tiger Oil property became contaminated from leaks and spills of petroleum product from the Tiger Oil property.

Since 1995, a ground water and soil vapor extraction system has operated on the Mercy property to prevent off-site petroleum migration.  Under the proposed Consent Decree, the existing soil vapor extraction system will be expanded to enhance soil cleanup.  This will occur once contaminated soils are removed from the Tiger Oil site. 

The Consent Decree is available for review at the following locations:

Consent Decree, Cleanup Action Plan, Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study Report, and Risk Assessment Report Available for Public Review & Comment - Weyerhaeuser Dupont 1 (aka Former DuPont Works), Facility Site ID No. 1269, 2301 Center Drive, Dupont, 98327, Pierce County

Ecology, the Weyerhaeuser Company, and E.I. DuPont de Nemours Company are proposing a Consent Decree to implement a Cleanup Action Plan at the Weyerhaeuser Dupont 1 site.  These documents, along with the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study report and Risk Assessment report, are available for review and comment through April 23, 2003.

DuPont Works, an explosives manufacturing plant, operated on the property from 1906 until the mid 1970s.   The contamination is a result of the manufacturing process, waste disposal, and decommissioning of site buildings.

The cleanup outlined in the proposed Cleanup Action Plan calls for the following cleanup actions:

The public can meet with site officials at two planned events.  The first, an informational workshop catered towards individuals less familiar with the cleanup and its history, will be held on February 12, 7:00 p.m., at the Dupont City Hall, 303 Barksdale Avenue, Dupont, (253) 964-8121.  The second event is a public hearing and will be held on March 12, 7:00 p.m., at the same location.  The proposed cleanup will be discussed at the hearing.

Documents are available for review at the following locations:

For more information or to submit written comments, please contact Mike Blum, Site Manager, at the Department of Ecology, PO Box 47775, Lacey WA  98504-7775 or (360) 407-6262, e-mail [log in to unmask].

Remedial Investigation Report Available for  Public Review & Comment - City Parcel (formerly Spokane Transformer, Inc.), Facility Site ID No. 650, 708 N. Cook St., Spokane, 99202, Spokane County

Ecology conducted a Remedial Investigation at the City Parcel site in 2002 to determine the nature and extent of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) contamination in soil and ground water.  The Remedial Investigation report, which outlines the analysis and results of the investigations and presents recommendations for future activities, is now available for public review and comment. 

From 1961 until 1979, the site was used as a transformer repair and recycling operation called Spokane Transformer, Inc.  Historically, PCBs were used as insulating fluids, coolants, and lubricants in transformers, capacitors, or other electrical equipment; as heat transfer and hydraulic fluids; and in inks and carbonless paper.  The manufacture of PCBs ceased in the United States in 1977 due to evidence that they build up in the environment and may cause harmful health effects.

In 1980, City Parcel, Inc. began a parcel delivery service at the property that continues to operate at the site today.

Results of the Remedial Investigation show there is extensive PCB contamination in soils in the gravel parking area on the north side of the building, and in the alleyway east of the property.  Ground water contamination could not be confirmed from two sampling events conducted during the investigations.  A monitoring well located in the alleyway showed PCB concentrations above Method A cleanup standards during the April 2002 sampling event.  However, no detectable PCBs were found in any of the monitoring wells in July 2002.

Recommendations for the site presented in the Remedial Investigation report include conducting additional ground water investigations to determine if seasonal changes in ground water levels are causing the "stopping and starting" of PCB contamination in ground water.  Also recommended is additional soil sampling to determine the depth of PCB contamination.

The Remedial Investigation report is available for review at the following locations:
