The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) plans to remove the Schlueter Property site from the Hazardous Sites List. The owners cleaned up the site under the Voluntary Cleanup Program. Ecology reviewed the cleanup and determined that:
- The site is no longer a threat to human health or the environment.
- The site cleanup actions meet state cleanup standards.
- No further action is needed.
The Schlueter Property is located at 1515 196th Street SE in Bothell, Washington. Pursuant to Ecology’s receipt of illegal dumping complaints on the property, the Snohomish Health District collected soil samples at the site in February 2005 and completed a Site Hazard Assessment (SHA), on behalf of Ecology. The resulting SHA rank for the site was 4, based on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 represents the greatest potential impact to human health and the environment. The property was added to the Ecology Confirmed and Suspected Contaminated Sites List in February 2006.
The site entered the Voluntary Cleanup Program in June 2017. Chemicals of concern identified in the SHA were petroleum hydrocarbons and heavy metals.
A site may be removed from the Hazardous Sites List only if the site is cleaned up. Ecology will hold a public notice for any site it proposes to remove from this list.
