- Send your comments to Ecology for consideration. Comments will be accepted October 12, 2020 through November 12, 2020
An Interim Action is a partial or short-term cleanup of contamination while a long-term plan is worked on. ADCAP is a draft document of the final cleanup action selected, which specifies cleanup standards and methods and includes any environmental monitoring required during and after cleanup. An Agreed Order is a legal agreement between Ecology and the Potentially Liable Persons (PLPs) outlining the expectations, process, and schedule for site cleanup. SEPA is a legal tool for protecting the environment, which includes encouraging public involvement in decisions, requires environmental documents that are clear, concise and to the point, and evaluates possible environmental impacts. A SEPA Checklist is used to help determine potential environmental impacts if the proposed cleanup plan is carried out. A SEPA DNS documents the responsible official’s decision that a proposal is unlikely to have significant adverse environmental impacts.
Petroleum contains many chemicals that are harmful to human health and the environment. A new AgreedOrder (AO) is necessary to implement the Cleanup Action Plan.
