Pacific Pride Tanker Fire, Monitor

Comment on proposed removal from the Contaminated Sites List

Feb. 1, 2024 - March 4, 2024, 11:59 p.m.

We propose moving this site from the Contaminated Sites List to the No Further Action Sites List.

We invite you to review the No Further Action Letter and comment on removing Pacific Pride Tanker Fire from this list.


In 1991, a gasoline tanker spilled in an accident in Chelan County near Monitor, spilling about 10,000 gallons of gasoline. The tanker caught fire and some of the spilled fuel burned. The next year, workers removed about 1,300 cubic yards of gasoline-contaminated soil and pumped water and gasoline out of the excavation area. They disposed of the contaminated material off site.

In 2018, soil sampling revealed no gasoline contamination remained above state cleanup standards. Groundwater sampling between 1996 and 2018 confirmed no contamination remains above state cleanup standards. Ecology has determined that the site no longer poses a threat to human health or the environment and recommends removing the site from the Contaminated Sites List.

What happens next?

After the public comment period ends, Ecology will review and respond to comments received during the comment period. We will hold a public meeting if  10 or more people request it. If no changes are necessary, we will move the site from the Contaminated Sites List to the No Further Action Sites List.
