Public comment needed on Chevron terminal cleanup

Posted: Updated:
PASCO, Wash.--  It's been nearly a decade since the last found leak at the Chevron fuel terminal in Pasco. But that's also part of the problem.

Their last leak was in 2000 and yet the state Department of Ecology says there most likely is still contamination in nearby soil and groundwater. Now they have a proposed agreement with Chevron and Tidewater Terminal to study the soil and require the companies to pay for the cleanup. Because of state law, they must put their plans up for public comment. 

If you want to let your voice be heard, you can submit your public comment to his address at:

William Fees

4601 N. Monroe St.

Spokane, WA 92205


You can look at the proposal yourself at the mid columbia library in Pasco.
