Everett Cleanup Plan Up for Comment

A proposed legal agreement is designed to shape a major cleanup project that will address decades-old contamination in Everett’s East Waterway, part of Port Gardner Bay.

Historical industrial activities deposited contamination, including various chemicals and metals, into and near the waterway.

The public can comment on the legal agreement that includes Kimberly-Clark Corp., which operated a now-closed pulp-and-paper mill adjacent to the East Waterway; the Port of Everett, which owns tidelands in the waterway; the Washington Department of Natural Resources, which also owns tidelands; and the Washington Department of Ecology.

A public comment period runs through July 30. Ecology also will hold a public meeting on July 14 at Everett Station so people can learn more and ask questions about eventual waterway cleanup. Comments are also invited on a draft public participation plan that explains how people can learn about steps in the cleanup process and how to participate.

The draft agreement outlines how the involved parties will investigate contamination in the waterway and then propose options for cleanup work.
