[ARCHIVED] Stutz Oil - Proposed Removal from the Hazardous Sites List

Washington State Department of Ecology requests public comments on the proposed removal of Stutz Oil from the Hazardous Sites List

Cleanup is complete at the Stutz Oil site located at 3003 Harborview Drive in Gig Harbor.  The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) invites your comments on the proposed removal of the site from the State’s Hazardous Sites List and removal of an environmental covenant (EC) which restricts development activities.

Comments will be accepted from April 16 to May 16, 2018.

The site formerly contained five above-ground fuel storage tanks (ASTs).   Gasoline and diesel from the ASTs leaked into soil and groundwater.  Cleanup was conducted by the property owners under Ecology’s Voluntary Cleanup Program.  As a result of the residual contaminated soil left in place, an EC was issued in 2009.  Additional cleanup was conducted in 2017. Samples taken after the 2017 cleanup indicate that contaminant concentrations in soil and groundwater were either below State cleanup levels or below laboratory detection limits.

Read more about the site, including the No Further Action Letter that describes how cleanup was done and why we believe it is complete at Ecology’s Stutz Oil website.

Hard copies of the documents described here are available at two document repositories starting April 16:
