We want to hear from you!

We oversee the cleanup of contamination at the Port Gamble Bay and Mill Site in Kitsap County. 

The following documents are available for your review and comments:  

• Draft Cleanup Action Plan  – The draft Cleanup Action Plan (DCAP) describes the proposed upland cleanup action for the site and outlines requirements for the cleanup.
• Draft Consent Decree – The draft Consent Decree is a formal legal document between Ecology and the potentially liable parties, or PLPs (Pope Resources and OPG Properties LLC) that requires the PLPs to carry out the actions identified in the Cleanup Action Plan.
• SEPA Checklist and Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) – Explains the possible environmental consequences of this cleanup plan and the determination that impacts likely will not result in significant adverse effect on the environment. This is included as an appendix to the draft Cleanup Action Plan.
• Supplemental Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS)  - The draft supplemental RI/FS characterizes the nature and extent of upland contamination, describes earlier cleanup actions, and presents an evaluation of final cleanup alternatives. To manage large file size, the appendices of this document have been split into several sections. You can find all of those sections by clicking the “View Electronic Documents” link on the right.
