In-person public meeting

Lower Issaquah Valley PFAS cleanup sites

May 2, 2024, 6:30 p.m., Issaquah, WA

Please join us to learn about two cleanup sites in Issaquah.

  • 5:30 p.m.: pre-meeting Open House 
  • 6:30 p.m.: Presentation, with time for questions and answers later.

Interpretation will be available in Spanish, Chinese, and Hindi during the meeting via the Zoom application with a smartphone and headphones. Ecology will have limited number of smartphones and headphones to borrow.


We identified the EFR HQ IVES (Eastside Fire & Rescue Headquarters and Issaquah Valley Elementary School) and Rainier Trail & Memorial Field sites due to releases of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to soil and groundwater. Investigations determined the likely source of PFAS is firefighting foam formerly used at the sites during lawful training activities.

We are currently accepting comments on two legal agreements and a public participation plan for these sites.
