The (Everett) Herald has a good rundown on the work under way to clean up arsenic and lead contamination from the Everett Smelter at properties in North Everett.
This phase of work will wrap up in spring 2012. More properties will be cleaned up in 2012 and subsequent years.
Check out our Everett Smelter web pages to learn more about the history behind this project, and to see photo galleries of the cleanup effort.
