The Washington State Department of Ecology proposes to extend soil remediation at the City Parcel site and to remove PCB-contaminated soil along the west fence line. Previous sampling confirmed there is residual soil contamination under the surface along the fence line in this area. The site is located at 708 North Cook Street in the City of Spokane, Spokane County, Washington.
The work will include removing the fence along the west portion of the site, removing contaminated soil, and replacing it with clean fill.
Ecology will begin remediation after public comment has been considered.
You are invited to:
Review the draft Work Plan for the proposed sampling and supplemental investigation along with the addendum to the SEPA checklist and DNS.
Send your comments to Huckleberry Palmer at Ecology for consideration.
Comments will be accepted January 30 through March 2, 2015.

At the request of Ecology’s Eastern Regional Office Water Quality Program, a literature review was conducted to determine possible contributions of air deposition to the loading of toxic chemicals to urban stormwater and wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in Eastern Washington. This includes model ranges of percent loading contribution of PCBs to the City of Spokane stormwater.
