Around the Sound: A few items to start the week

By Seth Preston, Communication Manager, Toxics Cleanup Program

Port Gardner Bay

Something called the Everett WA blog reprints Ecology’s news release on our cleanup work under way in the Port Gardner Bay area in Everett.

Port Gardner Bay is one of Ecology’s high-priority, “early-action” cleanup areas under the Puget Sound Initiative. That’s the effort by local, tribal, state and federal governments, business, agricultural and environmental communities, scientists, and the public to restore and protect the health of the Sound.

At Port Gardner Bay, an Ecology team is working with the Port of Everett, other site owners, area tribes, and others to help shape the cleanups at 10 polluted sites. The blog and news release give a rundown on the status of each site.


  • The Bellingham Herald reports on Ecology’s work on cleaning up an old city landfill. Here’s the Herald story, and here’s the original Ecology news release on the subject.

  • And the Kitsap Sun reports on the geoduck harvesting in several areas around Kitsap County, including Hood Canal and north of Port Gamble.
