ECOLOGY PROPOSES REMOVING THE SITE FROM A RESTRICTIVE (ENVIRONMENTAL) COVENANT

Ecology invites your comments on the draft Termination & Release of Restrictive Covenant for the XP2 Marc Land Associates Site. A restrictive covenant is sometimes called an environmental covenant (EC). The EC limits the type of land use to protect health and the environment. 

The Site is located at 1650 E 18th Street in Tacoma (Pierce County parcel numbers 0320036003 & 0320036004). The Site is cleaned up and no further cleanup actions are needed. Ecology proposes removing the Site from Restrictive Covenant no. 200301100792.

Supporting documents include:

  • Restrictive Covenant no. 200301100792 recorded in 2003. The covenant (EC) was required because petroleum-contaminated soil above state cleanup levels remained underneath some structures on the property after cleanup. Since then, the structures were removed and additional investigations show the Site is not contaminated.
  • No Further Action (NFA) letter issued by Ecology in 2018 indicated there was no contamination on the Site above cleanup levels.
  • Draft Termination & Release of EC from Ecology in 2020.

A Fact Sheet briefly summarizes the proposed removal of the restrictive covenant. 

After the comment period, we will review the comments. If there are no significant changes, the Site will be removed from the EC.

SITE DESCRIPTION

The Site is an industrial area in the Tacoma tide flats. In the past, the Site occupied the northern portion of an area used by a lumber mill and storage facility (Fred Tebb & Sons, Inc.). 

In 2012-2013, the northern section was subdivided into two new parcels (Pierce County parcel numbers 0320036003 and 0320036004). Now the Site is an open paved asphalt parking area with an above ground fuel tank and an office building.


SITE CLEANUP

In 1989, petroleum-contaminated soil was found when a 500-gallon gasoline/diesel underground storage tank was removed. About 270 yards of contaminated soil was removed from the former tank location.

Groundwater monitoring in 1992-1995 and 2000-2001 showed petroleum contamination was below state cleanup levels. However, some petroleum-contaminated soil was left in place under building structures. In 2003, a NFA letter was issued to Fred Tebb and Sons and the EC was recorded for the (parent) parcel 0320032042.

In 2012-2013, the parent parcel 0320032042 was subdivided into the current (children) parcels 0320036003 and 032036004 and purchased by X2P Marc Land Associates. The structures that covered the contaminated soil were removed.  Additional sampling for petroleum contamination in 2017 confirmed that soil was clean and petroleum contamination in groundwater was below cleanup levels. The EC for the two parcels was no longer required. 

In 2020, the property owner requested removal of the two parcels from the EC.
