Around the Sound: Sampling to start at Bellingham Bay site

By Seth Preston, Communications Manager, Toxics Cleanup Program

Next week, contractors will start taking samples at the R.G. Haley cleanup site on the shore of Bellingham Bay.

Sampling will continue for several months, and will yield information that will help shape the eventual cleanup of the site. Here’s a news release about the project.

You can learn more about the R.G. Haley site and the work at other Bellingham Bay sites on Ecology’s website.

On a related note, the Bellingham Herald reports that plans to develop the Bellingham Bay waterfront are changing. And here’s a presentation about that.
