Shell Puget Sound Refinery

Solid Waste Management Unit 55 Cleanup

Nov. 28, 2018 - Jan. 4, 2019

We invite you to comment on Agreed Order DE 16082 and the associated State Environmental Policy Act Determination of Nonsignificance on the Shell Oil Products US Puget Sound Refinery cleanup of non-hazardous waste landfarm known as Solid Waste Management Unit (SWMU 55).

The refinery proposes to construct three above-ground petroleum storage tanks at the SWMU 55. Before this can take place, Shell must complete cleanup activities that protect human health and environment. Potential releases of hazardous substances include total petroleum hydrocarbons, BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene), carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (cPAHs), and mercury.
