Site Description

Interim Action Cleanup
Interim Action Cleanup
The Cap Sante Marine site was acquired by the Port of Anacortes (Port) in 1956 and operated as a boat yard, marina support area, and offshore fueling facility. From the late  1970s to 2007, Cap Sante Marine, Ltd. occupied the northern portion of the site and continued to supply marine services. In the early 1980s, fuel was observed seeping from an underground storage tank (UST) into the waters of Fidalgo Bay next to the site. Fuel was recovered and the seepage was stopped. In 1985, the Port replaced the then-existing USTs with new tanks; however, petroleum contaminated soils were not removed. In 2004 and 2005, the Port further inspected the degree of the site contamination. Findings revealed that a fan-shaped contaminated area around the former USTs was impacting soil and groundwater. In 2007, USTs, supply lines, and 9,888 cubic yards of contaminated soil were removed during a partial cleanup called an Interim Action.

Currently there are two areas where isolated contaminated soil remains, approximately 1,100 cubic yards in the Cap Sante Lease Area and 700 cubic yards in the Fisherman’s Work Area and Parking Lot of the site.

Site Status

Cleanup was completed for this site in 2014, after an environmental covenant was established that listed several requirements to prevent exposure to the contamination that remains on site.

Those requirements include:

· Restricting future development and controlling future soil disturbance where contamination remains by establishing environmental covenants for the site.

· Containing contaminated soil with a cap of gravel and plantings for the Marine Lease Area and asphalt for the Fisherman’s Work Area.

· Monitoring groundwater wells regularly to assess the performance of the cleanup.

According to the covenant, any accidental damage to these systems must be reported to Ecology, and planned work that could compromise their integrity must be approved by Ecology.

A periodic review conducted in 2021 found that the requirements of the covenant are being followed and the caps had not been damaged.

Site use restrictions called institutional controls are in effect

Institutional controls can be fences, signs, or restrictions on how the property is used. For instance, an institutional control may prohibit installing drinking water wells or disturbing a protective cap that isolates contamination. These restrictions keep the contamination contained and keep people from being exposed to the contamination. The controls are usually listed in environmental covenants recorded with the county.

Periodic reviews are required when institutional controls are required at a site. Ecology conducts reviews to make sure the controls remain effective and the cleanup still protects human health and the environment. We conduct periodic reviews about every five years.
