Description Ecology is issuing a draft permit for corrective action to SSA Containers for the former Reichhold Chemical plant (Reichhold) in Tacoma, Washington. In 2014, soil contaminated with dioxin/furan compounds was found at the Reichhold facility. Ecology required SSA to complete a supplemental Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) and Cleanup Action Plan amendment to address the dioxin/furan contamination at the facility. This draft permit incorporates by reference the corrective action requirements, as determined by Ecology in the consent decree, its attachments, and its amendments including the new Corrective Action Management Unit order.
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.
