A major feature of the Skykomish Cleanup Project is a barrier wall and treatment system along the railyard called the Hydraulic Control and Containment (HCC) System. Ecology approved a Pilot Study in January 2019 to evaluate the HCC System’s passive treatment operation (allowing the carbon media to passively treat groundwater without the active pumps). 

The amendment to the legal agreement and the enclosed Cleanup Action Plan allows for additional evaluation of the passive operation of the HCC System. If the results continue to demonstrate that cleanup levels have been met, the passive HCC System operation may continue permanently upon approval from Ecology.
