ANACORTES PORT OF DAKOTA CREEK

A PUGET SOUND INITIATIVE Site - Reaching the goal of a healthy, sustainable Puget Sound.


SITE DESCRIPTION

The site is currently an active shipyard, used for the construction and repair of vessels.

The Dakota Creek Industries site has been used for industrial and shipyard activities since approximately 1879. The Port of Anacortes acquired the site in the mid-1940s and operated there until the mid-1970s. Dakota Creek Industries, Inc., the current tenant, leased the site from the Port in 1977 for the construction and repair of vessels.

Historically, the site was used for vessel mooring, storing bulk fuel and oil, and shipbuilding. These uses have resulted in soil, groundwater, and sediment contamination. Other potential sources of contamination at the site include outfall discharges from the former Scott paper mill and City of Anacortes municipal sewer.

A Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study is being developed for this site. This will describe the extent and nature of contamination at the site, and propose alternatives for cleanup. We also anticipate a Cleanup Action Plan and a legal agreement that details responsibilities for various cleanup activities. The public will be invited to comment on these documents before they are finalized.
