Cornwall Ave Landfill cleanup site

An environmental report that details contamination and a preferred cleanup option for the Cornwall Avenue Landfill cleanup site on Bellingham's waterfront is available for review and comment Aug. 22 through Sept. 20.


Extensive sampling across the 16-acre site found potentially harmful levels of hazardous substances in the groundwater, soil and sediment.


To prevent people, plants and animals from being exposed to contaminants, four cleanup options were evaluated.


Please see the attached fact sheet, read the news release, or visit the project website for additional information.
(Note: If printing the fact sheet, it prints best on 11x17 paper, landscape, double-sided.)


A couple pictures of the cleanup site are on Flickr:
