We invite you to comment on the draft periodic review report.
In July 2020, we completed a periodic review for the Palouse Producers site and recommended no further cleanup actions. Groundwater monitoring will continue to track cleanup progress. The property has been purchased, and redevelopment may proceed as long as monitoring well access is maintained. The owners are working with us to ensure their plans will protect the cleanup and comply with the environmental covenants.
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 an online public meeting if 10 people request one.
