Description The purpose of this report is to describe how the Department of Ecology (Ecology) is using the Asarco settlement to manage the risk from the Tacoma Smelter Plume. It provides an update on the cleanup progress and efforts to manage human health risks.

Our work funded by the Asarco settlement provides important services to residents that live within the plume. With these funds we are able to:

• Provide outreach to increase awareness and promote healthy behaviors to reduce contact with contaminated soil.
• Provide free soil sampling and soil replacement to existing residential yards in areas of highest contamination through the yard program.
• Sample and replace contaminated soil in areas where children play.
• Assist landowners in cleaning up contamination during property development.
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.
