Here are some new photos and an update on the work at the Country Junction store in South Kitsap County. For background information on the project, see the previous blog post and the embedded links.

Everett-based Clearcreek Contractors is heading the project at the gas station and convenience store east of Port Orchard. Ecology is using about $500,000 in stimulus money provided under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). It’s one of several ARRA-funded projects that Ecology is undertaking.
Here’s a summary of work done as of Monday, Feb. 15:
  • 3 underground storage tanks removed from the site

  • 4 test pits dug to a depth of 12 feet to determine the extent of soil contamination in proximity to the footing of the building

  • Soil and groundwater samples taken

  • Soil removed from site

  • Store canopy demolished

Stay tuned for more updates!
