Cleaning Up: Sunnyside port cleans up site of old milk plant, winery

By Seth Preston, communications manager, Toxics Cleanup Program

The Port of Sunnyside has finished cleanup work at an industrial site that started as a milk plant and later became a winery.

The port, which owns the site, dug up soil contaminated by fuel and dry-cleaning solvents that flowed from a separate uphill site to the plant property.

This 2013 news release describes how Ecology teamed with the port and provided a grant to assess the plant site's environmental conditions before the port bought the site.

Ecology also provided a $300,000 grant to help pay for the port's cleanup work. The port now plans to market the site for redevelopment.
