Send your comments to Ecology for consideration. Comments will be accepted July 15, 2022 through August 15, 2022
In 2015, Ecology entered into an Agreed Order (AO) with Burlington Northern Sate Fe Railway Company, the Potentially Liable Person(s) (PLP) for the site, requiring the completion of an Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS). Ecology approved the uplands RI in 2020. Following approval of the FS, the uplands Draft Cleanup Action Plan (DCAP) will be prepared and available for public review and comment after the final draft is complete. During the RI, the investigation also revealed sediment contamination. Currently, the investigation of the sediments continues and a separate RI will describe the in-water portion of contamination. The overall process for the sediment cleanup unit will follow the same sequence as described above for the uplands.The existing AO incorporates the in-water portion of investigation.
An Agreed Order (AO) is a legal agreement between Ecology and the Potentially Liable Person(s) (PLPs) outlining the expectations, process, and schedule for site cleanup. A Remedial Investigation (RI) shows what types of contamination exist and how far the contamination has spread. A Feasibility Study (FS) outlines a variety of cleanup options to address the contamination by reducing or eliminating the risk to human health and the environment. A Draft Cleanup Action Plan (DCAP) describes the final cleanup action selected for the site from the alternatives presented in the FS.
