We invite you to comment on an agreed order (legal agreement), supplemental upland remedial investigation work plan, and public participation plan for the Weyerhaeuser Everett Mill E cleanup site. This site is next to the Snohomish River in Northeast Everett.
The legal agreement between Ecology, Weyerhaeuser Company (Weyerhaeuser) and M.A.P. #2, LLC (M.A.P.) will require these potentially liable parties to complete a supplemental investigation, analyze cleanup options, and create a focused cleanup plan. After cleanup in 1999 by Weyerhaeuser under an Ecology-approved cleanup plan, periodic sampling shows that arsenic contamination levels may still be present in uncontained parts of the site. Potential releases like this may be harmful to human health and the environment and must be further investigated and addressed under the Model Toxics Control Act.
The following documents are available for review and comment:
- Agreed Order: this is a legal agreement between Ecology, Weyerhaeuser, and M.A.P. that requires these potentially liable parties to investigate and describe contamination (Supplemental Remedial Investigation), analyze cleanup options (Focused Feasibility Study), and develop a draft Focused Cleanup Action Plan.
- Supplemental Upland Remedial Investigation Work Plan: this document describes required additional testing in the uplands to begin in 2020. This information will support the Final Supplemental Remedial Investigation Report.
- Public Participation Plan: this document explains how people can participate in the cleanup process.
