Texaco Strickland, Lynnwood

Public comment period

July 6, 2021 - Aug. 4, 2021, 11:59 p.m.

We are inviting public comment on an Interim Action Work Plan and SEPA Determination of Non-significance for this site

The Texaco Strickland site is located at 6808 196th St SW in Lynnwood. The site consists of a portion of 196th Street Southwest and one Snohomish County parcel with an unoccupied building. 

The following documents are available for review and comment:

The purpose of the Interim Action is to remove the source of contamination and contaminated soils from the site. The planned work includes excavating contaminated soils, disposing of the material off-site at a permitted facility, managing contaminated groundwater, and then backfilling the excavation with clean material. In addition, the plan includes demolishing the existing building prior to excavation, installing temporary shoring on the north and western portions of the property, and removing any potential underground storage tanks.

This site is being addressed under the formal Model Toxics Control Act Agreed Order process because past studies have shown there are contaminants in soil and groundwater at concentrations potentially harmful to human health and the environment.

A gasoline service station operated at the property from 1959 to 1977. From 1977 until approximately 2006, the property was a lube facility run by Jiffy Lube and Equilon Lube. The building then became a restaurant, the Aloha Café. The Aloha Café closed in 2018, and the property is now vacant.

The following contaminants of concern were identified at the site above the state cleanup levels:

  • Soil and groundwater: Total Petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) in the gasoline range (TPHg), diesel-range (TPHd), and oil-range (TPHo); benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, and naphthalene.
  • Soil vapor: TPH and benzene.
