Yakima Old City Landfill

Comment on proposed removal from the Contaminated Sites List

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

We propose moving this site to the No Further Action Sites List because it meets state cleanup standards.

We invite you to review the No Further Action Letter and comment on removing Yakima Old City Landfill from the list. 


The site was a landfill that closed in the 1960s. It was listed as a contaminated site in the late 1990s because lead was found in groundwater above state cleanup levels. Further investigation showed that the lead detected was probably naturally occurring. Lead detection is now below state cleanup standards.

Ecology has determined the site does not pose 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, we 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.
