Site Background

Ecology received information that this property posed a threat to human health or the environment. This information may have come to Ecology from the owner of the property making a required notification, or may have come in the form of a complaint, through the Environmental Report Tracking System.

The Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) mandates that Ecology track any site that is suspected or confirmed to be contaminated with hazardous materials. This property was listed on the Confirmed and Suspected Contaminated Sites List on January 4, 2005.

On behalf of Ecology Toxics Cleanup Program, Skagit County Public Health conducted a Site Hazard Assessment (SHA) on this site on May 26, 2009. During the SHA, the hazardous substance(s) and environmental characteristics associated with the site were identified, and the potential threat to human health and the environment was evaluated. Skagit County Public Health concluded that this site posed no significant threat to human health and the environment and recommended No Further Action (NFA) to Ecology. Ecology concurred with the recommendation, and the site status was updated to NFA.

Additional Information Received

On September 9, 2019 Ecology received a report about potential contamination at the site. During the investigation, it was determined that contamination still exists. As a result, we determined that Ecology’s previous NFA determination be rescinded. Ecology has updated our cleanup site database to show further action is needed under MTCA.
