You're invited to review and comment on several planning documents for environmental cleanup at this site.

You’re invited to review and comment on the following documents for the Dakota Creek Industries cleanup:

  • Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study (RI/FS): This study describes the extent and nature of contamination at the site and presents potential options for how to clean it up.
  • Draft Cleanup Action Plan: This plan describes the final cleanup action chosen from the options presented in the feasibility study for the remaining contamination in the soil and groundwater at the site, and explains the requirements that the cleanup must meet, including follow-up monitoring of the site. The cleanup plan is included as an appendix to the site's consent decree.
  • Consent Decree: This legal document explains the terms by which the Port of Anacortes will perform the final cleanup of the Dakota Creek Industries site, by implementing the Cleanup Action Plan.
  • Draft Public Participation Plan: This plan describes Ecology’s public comment process and how the public can provide input on plans for cleanup at this site.

At the end of the comment period, we will consider all comments recieved and may change the content of these documents before finalizing them.

The Dakota Creek Industries site has been used for industrial and shipyard activities since approximately 1879, and the site is an active shipyard today. Some cleanup has been done, but more cleanup work is needed to meet Washington's cleanup standards.
