Description The Washington State Department of Ecology continues work to manage risks from contaminated soil in the Tacoma Smelter Plume. The plume is a 1,000 square mile area of arsenic and lead soil contamination from the former Asarco smelter in Ruston. We are hosting a public meeting to provide an update on the progress of the Tacoma Smelter Plume project. This notice includes the dates, location and topics for the public meeting.
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.
