Description The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) seeks your input on the following draft documents for the Grain Handling Facility at Freeman (site) February 12 through March 13, 2020:
• Interim action work plan — Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) and CHS, the parties responsible for cleanup, propose to pump-and-treat groundwater contaminated with carbon tetrachloride to reduce the contaminant mass, slow groundwater plume movement, and start progress toward achieving cleanup goals
• State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) documents — Ecology has reviewed the proposed interim cleanup actions using the SEPA checklist, and decided they won’t adversely affect people or the environment
Ecology is holding a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. on March 4, 2020, in the Freeman School District K-8 Multipurpose Room. We will explain the proposed interim cleanup and answer your questions. You may also submit written comments at the 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.
