Cleanup Complete

*Información en Español*

Ecology removed the site from the Hazardous Sites List in 2014. The Hazardous Sites List contains contaminated sites that have been evaluated and ranked. A rank of 1 indicates the greatest potential threat to human health and the environment, and 5 the least potential threat. This site ranked a 2 based on petroleum contamination in soil and groundwater.
The site is used as a bulk fuel and lubricant facility. It includes above-ground storage tanks, product piping, and fuel dispensers for retail sale. A warehouse is used to store drums of bulk lubricating products.
Several steps were taken to clean up soil and groundwater contamination. Cleanup standards were met over an extended period of monitoring since 1991, and Ecology issued a no further action letter in 2014, stating cleanup is complete.
