Description In March 1999, Governor Locke requested that the departments of Ecology and Health
produce a summary of statewide groundwater contamination. The attached information
describes and shows where chemical contaminants are known to be polluting or
threatening drinking water at specific sites and across large regional areas in Washington
This report provides the most-current information available about the status of cleanup or
remediation at each site or area, and indicates the status of human exposure to the
contaminated water. Because each contaminated site is different, health risks are assessed
and follow-up actions determined on a case-by-case basis.
This report solely addresses chemical contamination that affects or potentially affects
drinking-water sources; it does not include information about all groundwater
contamination in Washington. In fact, it is likely that additional contaminated sites exist
that have not been identified yet.
NOTES The publication is not available as web content or from the Ecology Library. We are sorry. This publication is no longer available through this site.
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.
