Description This report summarizes information about the location, nature, and status of contaminated sediment sites. As the lead state agency for environmental cleanup activities, Ecology plays an important role in restoring sediment quality. Under the authority of the Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA), the Water Pollution Control Act (WPCA), and Sediment Management Standards (SMS), the Toxics Cleanup Program (the Program) is charged with getting contaminants out of the environment and keeping them out. The SMS prescribes criteria, source control, assessment, and cleanup procedures specific to the sediment media.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
