Toxics Cleanup Program


Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration (NRDAR)

Elliott Bay Trustee Council & Elliott Bay/Duwamish Restoration Program Restoration Sites



A 1991 settlement with the City of Seattle and Metro (now King County) established the Elliott Bay Duwamish Restoration Program (EBDRP) and provided funds to perform provide primary restoration (cleanup) of sites, and funding for compensatory habitat restoration.  The panel selected 4 habitat restoration projects on the Lower Duwamish Waterway, which have been completed.  For more information about the restoration projects, see the links on the right side of this page.  The Program participants continue to meet to review ongoing stewardship and monitoring.  For more information about the EBDRP contact John Kern at John.Kern@noaa.gov

The Elliott Bay Trustee Council officially formed in 2005, and includes NOAA, US Fish and Wildlife Service, The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, The Suquamish Tribe, and the State of Washington (Department of Ecology and Department of Fish and Wildlife).  The Trustee Council is in the process of assessing injury to resources, but early settlements have resulted in several restoration sites on the Lower Duwamish Waterway.  Access the links on the right side of this page for more information on restoration projects.  For more information about the Elliott Bay Trustee Council see the website:  https://darrp.noaa.gov/hazardous-waste/lower-duwamish-river or contact Rebecca Hoff at Rebecca.Hoff@noaa.gov

The Elliott Bay Trustee Council also oversees restoration projects resulting from the PSR/Wykoff Eagle Harbor NRD settlement.  For more information see the website:  http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/tcp/sites_brochure/NRDAR/councils-sites/Wyckoff-Eagle-Harbor/NRDAR-Wyckoff-sites.html or contact John Kern at John.Kern@noaa.gov.
