Department of Ecology News Release - May 8, 2015

Comment time extended for proposed Tukwila gas station cleanup agreement

TUKWILA – People have longer to comment on an environmental cleanup proposal for a Tukwila gas station just south of Boeing Field.

The Washington Department of Ecology will accept comments through June 19, 2015.

Current and former owners of Boeing Field Chevron have signed a legal agreement, called an Agreed Order, with Ecology to test soil, stormwater and groundwater contamination. The site – at East Marginal Way, S. and Pacific Highway, S. – is known to have petroleum-contaminated soil and groundwater.

An earlier Ecology news release provides more information on the cleanup proposal.

To comment, write or email Dale Myers, site manager, Dale.Myers@ecy.wa.gov, or Department of Ecology, 3190 160th Ave. S.E., Bellevue WA, 98004-5452.
