Everett Smelter Cleanup: Local office hours start this month

By Meg Bommarito, Everett Smelter Project Manager

Starting in a few weeks, Ecology staff will now be more available to the Everett community to provide information on Everett Smelter cleanup work.

Twice a week from June 28 until the end October, either I or Frank Reinart (upland site manager) will be at the Baker Heights Community Center, 1401 Poplar St., to answer questions and share information about the cleanup.

Stop by Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon and Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m. to ask questions, pick up the latest fact sheet or other materials and find out the latest information about the cleanup.

Once construction starts in mid-July, you can also stop by to find out more about the cleanup schedule, traffic routes and our progress.

We’d also love to hear your ideas on how we can better share information with the community.

Need more information about the cleanup? We have several other resources to offer!

  • Ecology’s website: We recently updated our Everett Smelter website with the latest information to help you find more resources.

  • Written material: We have fact sheets, posters, kid’s activity sheets, and brochures available. These can be found online, or you can call or email us to ask for copies. Fact sheets will be mailed out a couple times a year.

  • Presentations: If you’d like Ecology staff to come and speak to your community or neighborhood group, let us know.

  • Local information line: Call (425) 530-5169. Our staff will return your calls within 24 hours.

  • Public meetings: We will hold public meetings each year to share information about our progress and what’s next on the schedule.
