Description Ecology is funding sediment sampling in public access areas at Priest Point Park in Budd Inlet this fall. Thurston County Public Health and Social Services will lead the investigation. The Department of Health (DOH) reported there was no apparent health hazard for people exposed to Budd Inlet sediments. However, DOH recommended collecting additional samples at Priest Point Park beach areas. The goal of this study is to determine if sediments at the park's public access areas pose a potential dioxin-related health risk. The Sampling and Analysis Plan is available online but Ecology is not accepting comments on the document. This is not a public comment period.
