Port Angeles Rayonier Mill cleanup
Meetings & Hearings
Port Angeles, WA
Start: 6:30 p.m.

The former Rayonier Mill is located at 700 N Ennis Street. The extent of contamination across the site is unknown, so the focus is the Study Area, which includes the 75-acre former mill property and 1,300 acres of marine environment next to the mill property.

Air emissions, discharge of liquids from outfalls, fuel spills, releases from electrical equipment, and wood waste caused contamination of the property and marine environment. Contaminants found in soil and groundwater include polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), metals, dioxins, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Marine sediment contains many of the same contaminants and wood waste.

The levels of contamination are potentially harmful to humans and the environment and must be addressed under Washington’s cleanup law, the Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA). Cleanup options described in Volume III eliminate ways that people and marine life might be exposed to contamination.
