Soil Safety Program
Childcares and Schools
The Soil Safety Program provides:
Parks, Camps, and Public Housing
In December of 2009, the State of Washington received a settlement from Asarco, including $94 million to pay for cleanup of the Tacoma Smelter Plume. Ecology is using some of the funding to expand the Soil Safety Program to include public park, camp, and public multi-family housing play areas. For more information, please see Soil Safety Program Frequently Asked Questions – Park, Camps, and Public Housing.
