Description The Toxic Cleanup Program requested assistance from the Environmental Investigations & Laboratory Services Program in determining if there is significant chemical contamination of the clams and sediments along a stretch of beach from the Jackson Park Housing Complex to Erlands Point, on Dyes Inlet, near Bremerton. The Washington State Department of Health has classified the commercial clam beds east of Erlands Point as "prohibited," due, in part, to possible contamination from toxic substances. Jackson Park Housing Complex is the site of a former Navy ordnance demilitarization facility and putative source of the contamination.
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.
