Description The Washington State Department of Ecology’s (Ecology) Tacoma Smelter Plume Residential Yard Program is updating the sequence plan for soil replacement in the Tacoma area. This 2023 sequence update ensures that the program prioritizes soil replacement in neighborhoods with the highest smelter contamination and where residents experience the greatest environmental health disparities. This focus sheet mailer summarizes this update to the sequence and provides online and in-person meeting information for mailer recipients.
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.
