An area in or near Tacoma has been contaminated by the former Asarco Smelter in Ruston/North Tacoma. Surrounding areas have been contaminated with arsenic and lead. Areas closest to the plant will be cleaned up by the EPA with Superfund money. Outside that area, the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology in the fact sheet) is performing the cleanup. The Ecology is probably similar to our NYSDEC.
The fact sheet and Q & A's provide a good explanation of the remediation solutions and the justifications, based on risk, of those selected solutions.
Click below (Read Full Article) for a review of those solutions.

There will be an open public session at the Middleport Fire Hall were verbal comments can be made. An afternoon session between 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM will be informal were members from the three agencies will sit down in one on one discussions. The evening session between 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM will be a formal session with brief presentations from both FMC and the Agencies before the floor will be open for anyone to give a verbal comment. There will be a stenographer present who will transcribe the session for later publication. All written and verbal comments/questions will be answered by the Agencies and published for public review sometime later in the summer or early fall.

In a letter dated December 21, 2010, FMC accepted the Agencies' modified directives and therefore avoided any action that would lead to filing for dispute resolution under the current Oder of Consent. FMC has set a target date for May 20, 2011 for completion of the revised CMS report. At that time there will probably be another review and comment by the Agencies before an agreed to report can be ready for public review.
The MCIG does not anticipate a need for the next meeting until the May time frame. An announcement will be made at the appropriate time. Updates will be made monthly using the "Keeping You Posted" notes available in the Document Repository under Meeting Materials.
