Description Pacific Wood Treating operated on the Port of Ridgefield waterfront property from 1964-1993. 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, sediment, and groundwater on and off the port property. In 1996 and 2001, the Department of Ecology and the port entered into agreed orders to investigate and clean up contamination from the former wood treating plant. The port has done several interim actions on port property and is working on others. New investigations are underway to evaluate contamination outside port-owned property.
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.
