We invite you to review and comment on draft documents for Boeing's facility at 700 15th St. SW in Auburn, Washington.
The Boeing Company owns and operates the Boeing Auburn plant, which makes parts for commercial aircraft. Boeing treated and stored hazardous waste at its Auburn facility and used trichloroethlyene (TCE), a liquid chemical, to clean metal airplane parts. TCE leaked into soil and groundwater through decades of use. Groundwater contamination extends off the Boeing property. Boeing no longer uses TCE at the facility.
