SITE STATUS - JANUARY 2019

PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD COMPLETED; AGREED ORDER BEING FINALIZED

Ecology negotiated a draft legal agreement (Agreed Order) to begin the process of cleaning up the South Park Marina site.  The work required under the Order is a site investigation (Remedial Investigation).  Parties to the Order include South Park Marina, LP, Seattle City Light, and the Port of Seattle. 

Ecology has completed a public comment period on the draft Agreed Order, along with a Public Participation Plan, for the Site. The comment period was held from December 10, 2018 - January 23, 2019. No comments were received. Ecology will therefore be signing the Agreed Order along with the other parties, making it final, and work will be going forward at the site.

SITE BACKGROUND


The South Park Marina is located at 8604 (and other addresses) Dallas Avenue South in South Park area of Seattle.  It is located on the west bank of the Lower Duwamish, immediately upstream from the South Park Bridge. The actual property is approximately two acres but size of the cleanup site is not yet known.
 
In the 1950s through the1960’s A & B Barrel used the site to clean and recondition barrels. The waste materials such as contaminated water was discharged to a small pond on the property, and then into the Duwamish River.

From the 1960s to the present day, the site was or is used to park cars, store and repair boats and conduct other activities associated with an active marina. All of these on site actions may have contributed to the contamination.  Activities conducted on the adjoining Terminal 117, Malarkey Asphalt site are also potential sources of contamination.

2005            Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) conducted soil sampling, Dallas Av. S
