Description Reducing toxic threats affecting Washington’s people and environment is one of Ecology’s priorities. Those toxic chemicals that are persistent in the environment and bioaccumulate in people and animals pose the greatest threat and receive special attention. One of these toxics is polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs. PCBs can cause adverse health effects in humans and wildlife including cancer and harm to immune, nervous, and reproductive systems. In 2015, the Washington departments of Ecology and Health released a chemical action plan to guide our state’s strategy to find and remove PCBs, and reduce exposures.
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.
