Draft periodic review report

Ecology invites you to review and comment on the draft periodic review report​ for the Martin Wood Products Property cleanup site. We conduct a periodic review at least every five years after initial cleanup is complete at a site, and this is the third periodic review for this site. The purpose of the review is to evaluate current site conditions and to ensure the continued protection of people and the environment.

Ecology visited the site September 15, 2021​, and found that the cleanup​ remains intact. The site is still a bulk propane distribution facility.

Next steps

Ecology will publish our responses to all comments received during the comment period. The periodic review will become final if no significant changes are made to the draft report as result of comments. An additional public comment period will be held if significant changes are made. We will hold an online public meeting if 10 or more people request it.​

CLEANUP COMPLETE

Spokane International Airport owns the site, and their Felts Field property is north of it.

From the 1940s to 1999, a variety of tenants occupied the site: an aluminum roofing, siding, and house trim manufacturing company; an electrical transmission line contractor; an autobody repair shop; and an asphalt maintenance company.

From 1997 to 2001, Spokane International Airport investigated and cleaned up the site under Ecology's Voluntary Cleanup Program. In 1999, all the buildings and other structures were demolished. Investigations included several areas of potential contamination:

  • Drum storage areas
  • Former underground storage tank location
  • Asphalt stockpiles
  • Above-ground storage tanks
  • Interior floor drain
  • Auto and equipment storage
  • Areas where the ground was stained
Soil samples were collected from these locations and analyzed for petroleum, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), volatile organic compounds, and metals. Petroleum-contaminated soil was found and excavated for off-site disposal, except where it was under or too close to railroad tracks. 

In 2002, Ecology filed a restrictive covenant for the property to prevent activities that would expose humans and the environment to remaining contamination and warn future owners of its presence. We also issued a letter stating cleanup was complete and updated the site's status to no further action.


POST-CLEANUP REVIEWS

We conduct a periodic review at least every five years after initial cleanup is complete at a site. The purpose of the review is to evaluate current site conditions and to ensure the continued protection of people and the environment.

Three periodic reviews have been completed for this site. Each time, Ecology found that no additional cleanup was required and that remaining contaminated soil hasn't been exposed. You can learn more in the reports:
