Around the Sound: Join us to talk about Port Gamble cleanups

By Seth Preston, Communications Manager, Toxics Cleanup Program

On Wednesday (March 9), Toxics Cleanup Program staff will venture to the Kitsap Peninsula to meet with Port Gamble area residents about two cleanup sites there.

We’re holding the community meeting at Hood Canal Vista Pavilion at 4740 NE View Drive, just off Highway 104 in Port Gamble. An open house will start at 4:30 p.m., followed by a 5:30 p.m. presentation and an informal question-and-answer session.

We’re working with property owners, area tribes, state agencies, and others to help shape cleanups at these two sites: For more details, see this Ecology news release.

Port Gamble Bay is a high-priority area under the Puget Sound Initiative.

Here are articles from the Kitsap Sun and the North Kitsap Herald about the meeting, the cleanup work and Port Gamble in general.
