Alcoa's Intalco Aluminum Smelter

Periodic review of completed cleanup activities

May 20, 2021 - June 21, 2021, 11:59 p.m.

We invite you to comment on the review of completed cleanup actions at four landfills on the Intalco aluminum smelter site in Ferndale.

This periodic review covers:

  • Beach l (BI) and Beach II (BII) Landfills
  • The Double-Lined Landfill (DLL)
  • The Closed Construction Debris Landfill (CCDL)

It finds that the cleanup actions completed at the site are performing as planned and remain protective of human health and the environment.

Visit our webpage for more information.


What is a periodic review?

We conduct a periodic review at least every five years at cleanup sites where some contamination remains, as required by the Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA). The purposes of the review are to evaluate site conditions and to ensure continued protection of human health and the environment.

We will review comments received during the comment period and make recommendations for suggested changes. The periodic review will become final if no significant changes are made. An additional public comment period will be held if significant changes are made.

We will hold a public meeting if at least 10 people request one.
