Ecology invites you to review a draft cleanup action plan and associated environmental review document for the South State Street Manufactured Gas Plant Site (Site) on the Bellingham waterfront. The plan calls for a combination of removing structures, capping contaminated soil and sediment, enhancing the natural breakdown of groundwater contamination, protecting the shoreline, monitoring conditions, and restricting activities that could disturb capped areas.

The following documents are available for review:

The contamination is from a former manufactured gas plant and other historic operations located at the north end of Boulevard Park. The contaminant levels are potentially harmful and must be addressed under Washington’s cleanup law, the Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA).
