Albert Jensen & Sons Inc. (in Friday Harbor)

Draft Agreed Order and Public Participation Plan

Jan. 6, 2020 - Feb. 5, 2020, 11:59 p.m.

We invite you to comment on plans to clean up the Albert Jensen & Sons Inc. site.

The Albert Jensen & Sons Inc. site, is one of several cleanup sites that have been prioritized for cleanup under the state's Puget Sound Initiative.

You are invited to review the following draft documents and send your comments to Ecology for consideration.

These draft documents can be reviewed from the site webpage or at the locations listed in the site fact sheet.


The Albert Jensen & Sons Inc. site, located at 1293 Turn Point Road in Friday Harbor, WA, was historically used for boat building and maintenance as early as 1910. Today, the site is still used as a boat maintenance facility and shipyard with a boat pullout and wash station onsite. Decades of industrial use have contributed to contamination in the soil and marine sediment at the site.

The Port of Friday Harbor (the Port) recently purchased the site from Albert Jensen & Sons with the intent to redevelop the site and address existing environmental concerns. We plan to work with the Port to design and implement a cleanup plan for the site. Recent sampling of the upland soil and marine sediment at the site identified tributyltin (TBT), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins/furans, phthalates, organic chemicals, pesticides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and metals.

Ecology and the Port are preparing to enter into an Agreed Order to provide remedial action and additional soil, groundwater and sediment investigations for cleanup at the site.
