Coleman Oil Yakima Bulk Plant

Remedial Investigation and Interim Action Report and Feasibility Study

Nov. 13, 2023 - Dec. 13, 2023, 11:59 p.m.

We invite you to comment on the results of an environmental study, and a comparison of cleanup options.

A Remedial Investigation and Interim Action Report and Feasibility Study for the Coleman Oil Yakima Bulk Plant site are ready for review. A remedial investigation uses data to see how far contamination has spread. An Interim Action is a partial or short-term cleanup of contamination and is meant to reduce exposure to harmful contaminants while a long-term cleanup plan is worked on. A feasibility study outlines options to cleanup the contamination.

Site Background

Wondrack Distributing, Inc. operated the bulk fuel distibuting site from 1976 until August 2015. Coleman Oil Company has been operating the bulk fuel facility since August 2015. 


In March 2016, someone discovered a diesel spill from underground piping at the site. A gasoline spill from subsurface piping was discovered in December 2016. Petroleum (gasoline and diesel) from the spills accumulated in soil and float on groundwater. Actions were taken to stop the spills after their discovery. Interim actions to periodically recover accumulated petroleum began in 2016 and continued into 2023. Formal cleanup actions have not started.

Next Steps

After the public comment period ends, Ecology will review and respond to comments received and will hold a public meeting if 10 or more people request one. Ecology may revise the documents based on comments received. If no revisions are necessary, the Remedial Investigation and Interim Action Report and the Feasibility Study will become final.
