We invite you to comment on a legal agreement and public participation plan for the Eatonville Landfill cleanup site.
- Agreed Order No. DE 20072: legal agreement between Ecology and the potentially liable persons, the Town of Eatonville and the Weyehaeuser Company, to prepare documents for planning cleanup of the site.
- Public Participation Plan: our plan for how to inform the community about cleanup at the site.
These documents and more information are available at the Eatonville Landfill site webpage.
The site is within the Nisqually State Park. The landfill is about two acres and located on a very steep slope. Municipal solid waste, appliances, car parts, empty drums, tires and other waste were disposed of at the landfill.
Metals (iron, lead, and zinc) have contaminated water at concentrations too high for water quality standards. The metals were found in water seeping from the ground at the base of the landfill. Other contaminants may have contaminated surface water, sediment, and/or groundwater. Suspected contaminants include polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), petroleum products, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).
