URM Stores Inc.

Proposed Removal from the Hazardous Sites List

October 8, 2018 - November 6, 2018

Ecology invites you to comment on our proposal to remove URM Stores Inc. from the Hazardous Sites List (HSL). This site, located at 7511 North Freya Street in Spokane, was ranked a 5 due to petroleum contamination in soil.

In the 1990s, nine underground tanks and contaminated soil around them were removed. The soil was thermally treated to destroy contaminants and then backfilled into the excavation.

During a recent file review, we realized this site was never removed from the HSL, so we are completing that now.

The Hazardous Sites List is a statewide list of contaminated properties. Sites are ranked on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 presenting the highest risk.

Ecology will review comments received during the comment period and decide whether any new information changes our decision to remove the site from the Hazardous Sites List. 

We will hold a public meeting if 10 people request one.
