A Remedial Investigation, Feasibility Study, and Public Participation Plan are available for your review and comment.
Ecology invites your feedback on the following documents:
- Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study
This presents the results of studies at the site to characterize the nature and extent of contamination. The report also evaluates cleanup alternatives to address contamination.
- Public Participation Plan
This outlines Ecology's process and opportunities for public input throughout cleanup at this site.
The JELD-WEN site is located on Everett’s waterfront at 300 West Marine View Drive. The industrial site contains about 36 acres of upland area and tidal flats. The land west of the railroad line, where the site sits, was created by filling the tidal delta in the 1920s and 1930s. Historical aerial photographs show filling activities from at least 1938 to the late 1970s.
Industrial activities at the site have included casket manufacturing, pole treating, wood door and sash manufacturing, fish net storage, saw milling, and asphalt pavement making. Site contamination is likely the result of the former creosote pole treating, door manufacturing using Woodlife, fuel oil use, emissions from hog fuel burners, and leaks and spills from aboveground and underground storage tanks and capacitors. Sampling at the site found the following contaminants in soil, groundwater, or sediments:
- petroleum hydrocarbons
- polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)
- polychlorinated biphenyl compounds (PCBs)
- semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs)
- volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
