X2P Marc Land Associates Site

Proposed Removal from a Restrictive Covenant

March 12, 2020 - April 11, 2020, 11:59 p.m.

We are proposing to remove an environmental Restrictive Covenant on the X2P Marc Land Associate's site.

The site is located at 1650 East 18th Street in Tacoma. The current Environmental Covenant (EC) was put in place to limit the type of land use to protect human health and the environment. Sampling for petroleum contamination in 2017 confirmed that soil was clean and petroleum contamination in groundwater was below state cleanup levels. Over time, the contaminant concentration decreased by natural attenuation.

In 2020, the owner requested removal of the two parcels from the EC. We have created a fact sheet that summarizes the proposed removal of the restrictive covenant.

The following documents are available for your review and comments:

Site background

The X2P Marc Land Assoc Site occupies a portion of an area used by a lumber mill and storage facility. Petroleum-contaminated soil was discovered when an underground fuel tank was removed in 1989. About 270 cubic yards of soil was removed from the former tank location. However, some contaminated soil remained under structures on the property. In 2012-2013, a portion of the property was subdivided into two new parcels. X2P Marc Land Associates purchased the two parcels and removed structures covering the contaminated soil. Groundwater monitoring showed petroleum contamination was below state cleanup standards. The covenant for the two parcels is no longer required.
