Description The Washington State Department of Ecology is removing contaminated soil on 80 residential yards in Tacoma this June 2016 through February 2017. This work is part of the Residential Yard Sampling and Cleanup Program. The program replaces arsenic and lead soil contamination from the former Asarco copper smelter in Tacoma.
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.
