Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital Property Cleanup Site

Periodic Review Available for Review and Comment

Jan. 2, 2020 - Feb. 1, 2020, 11:59 p.m.

We are providing an opportunity for public review and comment on the periodic review conducted at the Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital Property.

The Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital Property site is located at 30th Ave. and Walnut Ave., in Yakima.

Based on this periodic review, we have determined that the requirements of the institutional control are being followed. No additional remedial actions are required by the property owner. It is the property owner’s responsibility to continue to inspect the site to assure that the integrity of the site surface is maintained.

Periodic review and public comment process

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 10 people request one.
