We invite you to comment on an environmental report for the Harris Avenue Shipyard cleanup site in Bellingham. The report, called a remedial investigation/feasibility study:
The Port of Bellingham prepared this report with Ecology oversight.
- Describes contamination found at the site
- Evaluates cleanup alternatives
- Identifies a preferred cleanup alternative
Investigations conducted by the port found contamination from former ship building and other historical operations. Contaminants were found in soil and groundwater (petroleum hydrocarbon compounds and metals) and sediment (polychlorinated biphenyls, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, semivolatile organic compounds, and metals). The levels of contamination are potentially harmful to humans and the environment and must be addressed under Washington’s cleanup law, the Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA).
