Industrial Section Home

The Industrial Section focuses on three major industries of Washington State: aluminum smelters, oil refineries, and pulp and paper mills. We regulate:

  • Air, water, hazardous waste, and cleanup management activities at pulp and paper mills and aluminum smelters.
  • Water, hazardous waste, and cleanup management activities at oil refineries.

Our responsibilities include environmental permitting, site inspections, and compliance issues.

Click the links on the left hand side of this page for more information about our facilities and permits. You can also find detailed information on chemicals released by each facility in the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Toxics Release Inventory database.

We welcome your feedback about this site.
