Hide details for Cleanup ProgressCleanup Progress

In 1991, the State selected to treat the most contaminated soil "hot spots", covering some areas, and putting in place institutional controls (locally enforced rules) to address small quantities of contaminants. The remedy was completed in 1996 under a Consent Decree between the State and PACCAR. Remedial activities included bioremediating petroleum contaminated soil, stabilizing metals in soil, and excavating and removing soils contaminated with PCBs and PAHs. All actions are completed. No further activities are anticipated. Long-term groundwater monitoring is ongoing.
