Description From 1964-1993, Pacific Wood Treating operated on the Port of Ridgefield waterfront property at 111 West Division in Ridgefield. PWT pressure treated wood products with a variety of toxic chemicals. In 1993, PWT declared bankruptcy. Contamination related to PWT has been found in soil and groundwater on and off the port property. In 1996 and 2001, the Department of Ecology and the port entered into a legal agreement to investigate and clean up ontamination from the former plant. Ecology and the port are funding the investigation and cleanup. The port has done several interim actions on port property and is working on others.
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.
