Around the Sound: Oysters rescue and cleanup work

By Seth Preston, Communications Manager, Toxics Cleanup Program
  • Chris Dunagan of the Kitsap Sun offers continuing coverage of efforts to rescue oysters that the wake from a Navy ship may have washed up on a beach along Hood Canal.

  • John Dodge of The Olympian writes about the cleanup work at the old Hardel Mutual Plywood site on Budd Inlet in Olympia. Here’s more background on the site from Ecology.

  • The Peninsula Daily News has these two articles related to the former Rayonier mill site in Port Angeles. The first focuses on the city’s ongoing attempt to acquire some Rayonier property and a water tank to help deal with sewage overflow problems. The second looks at the Lower Elwha tribe’s ideas for restoring the Ennis Creek estuary.
