Port Angeles NRDA administrative record

Key documents in the Natural Resource Damage Assessment process comprise the formal administrative record. We have collected administrative records for Rayonier Mill and Western Port Angeles Harbor on this page, and in hard copy at the Port Angeles Library and the Department of Ecology’s Southwest Regional Office.

The administrative record includes documents the Trustees rely on to make decisions about natural resource damage assessment and restoration actions.

The Trustees provide the administrative record to inform the public and enhance public involvement in the NRDA process. We will update the administrative record both electronically and in hard copy as we add new documents.

You can review hard copy documents at:

  • Ecology’s Southwest Region records office at 300 Desmond Drive, Lacey, WA 98503. Please call Susie Baxter at 360-407-6365 or email PublicDisclosureSWRO@ecy.wa.gov for an appointment.
  • Port Angeles Library at 2210 S. Peabody Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362
