Description New Cleanup Site in Your Neighborhood: You may have already heard about the chemicals called PFAS
(per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances) found in your area. We want to let you know how Ecology’s Toxics Cleanup Program is tracking it. What does Ecology know about the site? We do not know much yet, but we know enough that more investigation is needed based on our cleanup regulation (the Model Toxics Control Act, or MTCA). We received a report of PFAS in a drinking water well near you. We added a new cleanup site to our files, which we are calling the Bailer Hill Area PFAS site. (The site name may change when we confirm the PFAS source.) Where can I find more information? To access all the information we have about the Bailer Hill Area PFAS site and links to other helpful PFAS resources, visit: If you have more information on PFAS in this area, please send it to us! This will help us provide better information on the source and extent of contamination to everyone.
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.
