Public Comment Period February 01, 2024-March 04, 2024

Ecology is proposing to remove the Tonys Auto Repair site, located at 1220S. 6th Street, from its Hazardous Sites List (HSL).

The Hazardous Sites List is a list of sites Ecology reviewed for their potential threat to human health and the environment. This review is based on how much contamination is present, how toxic it is, and how easily it can come in contact with people and the environment. Sites must go through cleanup and meet state standards before Ecology can remove them from the list.


•  No Further Action Letter, dated August 13, 2021

Based upon cleanup activities conducted at the site and the recording of the environmental covenant, Ecology has determined the site is no longer a threat to human health and the environment.

Next Steps

After the public comment period ends, Ecology will review and respond to comments received and will hold a public meeting if 10 or more people request one. After review and consideration of comments received, the site will be removed from the Hazardous Site List.

Site Description

The Site is the location of an auto repair business. The Yakima Health District complete an initial investigation in March 1995 in response to a complaint. Results of sampling showed that heavy oil, acetone, xylenes, toluene, and ethylbenzene were present at levels above state cleanup standards. 
After a Site Hazard Assessment conducted in 1996, the Site was ranked a “3” on the Hazardous Sites List. In 2004, due to adjustments made to the Hazardous Sites List, the Site’s ranking was updated to “1”. The Hazardous Sites List is a statewide list of contaminated properties.  Sites can be ranked from a “1” to “5”.  A rank of “1” is the highest level of environmental concern compared to other sites on the List, and a rank of “5” is the lowest.
