Public Involvement

Public input is an important part of cleaning up toxic sites! Ecology offers public involvement opportunities at key steps in the Rayonier Mill cleanup process.

Port Angeles Cleanup Work

Ecology is working with several companies to clean up other polluted sites around Port Angeles Harbor.  In addition, Ecology is working on two major investigations that began in 2008. One is studying pollution in sediments from across Port Angeles Harbor. The other investigation is looking at soils that may have been contaminated by air emissions from Rayonier Mill.
