Everett smelter cleanup progress

Our cleanup work is more than halfway done

About 700 residential properties were potentially affected by smelter contamination in the upland area. We have now completed sampling on all the properties that agreed to be sampled (more than 550).

For about 400 of these properties, we have either completed cleanup or determined through sampling that no cleanup is needed. We also completed cleanup of American Legion Park in 2016.




We will continue property cleanups as funding becomes available. Between cleanups, we are sampling properties within the cleanup site boundary to determine the extent of contamination.
