L & E Auto Sales
227 Naval Ave & 2101 Burwell Pl, Bremerton, WA 98312

PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD NOVEMBER 22, 2019-DECEMBER 23, 2019


The Department of Ecology is proposing to remove the L & E Auto Sales cleanup Site from the state’s Hazardous Sites List (HSL). The Site is located at 2101 Burwell Pl, Bremerton, WA 98312. The Site operated as a taxi cab parking and fueling facility from the 1940s until 1961, a used car lot until 2012, and thereafter as a recreational vehicle sales and service company. Contaminated soil was discovered in 2010 during removal of four underground storage tanks (USTs). In cooperation with Ecology, the Kitsap Public Health District (KPHD) completed a Site Hazard Assessment, resulting in a rank of 5 on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 represents the highest risk and 5 the lowest risk. This ranking estimates the potential threat to human health and the environment relative to other sites in Washington State.  The Site was added to the HSL in February 2013.

The Site entered the Ecology Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) in September 2013.  Interim cleanup actions had been completed during removal of three gasoline USTs and one waste oil UST from the site in 2010, when approximately 54 cubic yards (76 tons) of petroleum contaminated soil were removed and disposed at a permitted off-site facility.  Soil samples collected from the excavations and soil borings from 2010 through 2019 confirmed that petroleum concentrations in soils remaining at the site are below
Method A cleanup levels.  Site characterization reports also documented that groundwater was not affected by site contamination. Ecology has determined that the Site cleanup actions meet state cleanup standards, and Ecology is proposing to remove the Site from the:

• Hazardous Sites List
• Confirmed and Suspected Contaminated Sites List
• Leaking Underground Storage Tank List
