Description The public is invited to review and comment on a draft Consent Decree for the BNSF Parkwater Railyard site. The facility, formerly known as Yardley, is one-half mile south of the Spokane River and lies over the Spokane Valley Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer. The site is at 5302 East Trent Ave in Spokane, Spokane County, WA. The Consent Decree will be used to implement the plans for a cleanup at the site. The Decree describes the responsibilities of all parties involved. The comment period is April 30 through May 30, 2012.
