In 2002 almost 4,000 tons of petroleum-contaminated soil, and 6,000 gallons impacted groundwater were removed from property owned by the Port of Friday Harbor.

Now it is time for a five year periodic review -and public comment- on the review of the former Unocal Friday Harbor Bulk Plant, located just below the American Legion building, and part of Front Street, owned by the Town.


The purpose of the periodic review is to evaluate current site conditions and to ensure continued protection of human health and the environment.

Ecology will review comments received during the comment period and make recommendations for suggested changes. The periodic review will become final if no significant changes are made. An additional public comment period will be held if significant changes are made.

Please submit comments through Ecology’s Online Comment Form or mail your written comments to Tamara Welty at 3190 160th Ave S.E., Bellevue, WA 98008. To request ADA accommodation, call Ecology at 360-407-7285, 711 (relay service), or 877-833-6341 (TTY).

Background:

Ecology issued a no further action (NFA) determination for the Site on October 23, 2003 after a Restrictive Covenant was recorded for the Site to restrict activities that might result in exposures to the contaminants. This was issued through the Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP).

The NFA determination also required a groundwater compliance monitoring program to assure the Site does not pose a threat to human health or the environment. Quarterly groundwater monitoring began in November 2004. Results indicated that the Site had four consecutive quarters below MTCA Method A cleanup levels. In 2006, Ecology issued a second NFA determination that no longer required groundwater monitoring.
