Hide details for Site DescriptionSite Description

The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard Complex site is located in Bremerton, along the Sinclair Inlet on Puget Sound, about 15 miles west of Seattle, Washington. The Navy has owned and operated facilities at this location since 1891. The complex covers about 350 acres of land and an additional 340 acres of tidelands along 11,000 feet of shoreline. Over 12,000 people are employed at the complex. The complex contains over 300 buildings and structures, six deep water piers, six dry docks, and numerous moorings. The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS) is responsible for overhaul, maintenance, docking and decommissioning of ships. These activities generate large amounts of hazardous waste. The majority of the site is industrial and covered by pavement and buildings. Sinclair Inlet provides a habitat for a variety of marine life and is used for commercial fishing and recreational activities.

Site Responsibility: This site is being addressed through federal actions.

Media Affected: Groundwater, Soil, Sludges & Sediments
Petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals, semi-volatile organic compounds (semi-VOCs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have been identified in soil and sediments at a number of areas throughout the complex. Groundwater is contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons, heavy metals and, in some locations, volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Groundwater flows into Sinclair Inlet and is not currently used for drinking water.
