The PSR/Wyckoff consent decree was a settlement for natural resource damages and cleanup actions arising out of the release and/or disposal of hazardous substances at the Wyckoff/Eagle Harbor Superfund site and the PSR West Seattle wood treating facility. Approximately $3,380,000 of the total settlement is being used to fund restoration efforts to address natural resource injuries associated with the Wyckoff facility on Bainbridge Island.

The settlement funds to restore injuries at Eagle Harbor have been spent on the following efforts:

  • Strawberry Plant Park Shoreline Restoration
  • Pritchard Park East Shoreline Restoration 
  • Milwaukee Dock Eelgrass Restoration Project
