Description The Washington State Department of Ecology is directing and funding an investigation and evaluation of cleanup options of smelter-related metals contamination on Northport’s City Park and boat launch waterfront area. You are invited to comment on the draft Remedial Investigation (RI) Work Plan and State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) checklist and Determination of Non-Significance (DNS). We have reviewed the work plan activities using the SEPA checklist, and have determined they won’t adversely affect people or the environment, which resulted in the DNS.

Our goal is to assess options for protecting people and restoring the environment next to the City Park. The information gathered during the investigation will help Ecology understand where contamination exists and develop options for cleaning it up.
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.
