Description In 2004, The Department of Ecology began an area-wide investigation to examine known and suspected areas of contamination in downtown Montesano. The investigation led to the discovery of soil and groundwater contamination caused by historical and current activities. Underground storage tanks used by former and current gas stations have leaked petroleum products and created a large area of contamination. Ecology also detected chlorinated
solvents in the groundwater at some locations downtown. Ecology continued investigating the site in 2005. As a result, several contaminated properties were identified and entered into legal agreements with Ecology to begin the formal cleanup process.
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.
