Ecology invites you to review and comment on the periodic review for Nasty Jack’s Antiques located at 103 Morris Street, La Conner, Washington.

A periodic review is conducted every five years following a cleanup action when institutional controls are used as part of the remedy, as required by the Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA). The purpose of the periodic review is to evaluate current site conditions and to ensure continued protection of human health and the environment.

Ecology will review comments received during the comment period and make recommendations for suggested changes. The periodic review will become final if no significant changes are made. An additional public comment period will be held if significant changes are made.

Nasty Jack’s Antiques is located at 103 Morris Street, La Conner, Washington. The property consists of a retail antique store, a furniture refinishing shed, and a parking lot. Surrounding property use is a mixture of residential and commercial.

Furniture refinishing activities are conducted in a shed east of the retail shop, and include stripping, wiping, and washing down of furniture. In the past, stripped furniture was taken outdoors onto the unpaved parking area to be washed and wiped down.

Lead was detected in soil above the state cleanup standards (MTCA Method A cleanup level) in the parking lot to a depth of approximately two feet. The source of contamination appeared to be lead-based paint residuals from the former outdoor wipe and wash-down area associated with furniture stripping. Lead concentrations were significantly lower than the cleanup level deeper than two feet.


Nasty Jack’s Antiques entered into the Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) at the Department of Ecology (Ecology). On-site containment was selected as the remedy to address the lead contamination in the near surface soils. The parking lot was paved with asphalt in 2006.

A restrictive covenant was placed on the property to ensure remedy performance and to restrict activities that might result in exposure to contaminants. The Site received a No Further Action (NFA) determination in 2006.
