Around the Sound: Wrapping up the week

By Seth Preston, Communications Manager, Toxics Cleanup Program

Ecology staff responded this week to a diesel fuel spill from an old naval vessel in Port Gamble Bay.

Here’s a Kitsap Sun story on the incident, along with a KING-TV report. And here is our original news release.

Here are two stories about some interesting projects that have ties to the Sound:

  • The Seattle Times reports that the National Park Service is giving a boost to the effort to build an education wall as part of the Bainbridge Island Japanese American memorial project.

    Here’s more about the memorial, which is on the island’s Eagle Harbor. Both it and the Wyckoff cleanup site are within the boundaries of the city’s Pritchard Park.

    See past Around the Sound entries about Ecology’s work focusing on cleaning up the Wyckoff site.

  • The Peninsula Daily News writes about a study that will help map the original shoreline of Port Angeles.
