Dept. of Ecology looking for input on Buena gas station clean up

Posted: Updated:

BUENA, Wash.-- The Department of Ecology wants to hear input about its clean-up plan for Roby's service station in Buena. They'll accept public comments until April 16th.

It's located on the corner of Burr Street and Buena Road. The department hopes to haul contaminated soil from the area to a landfill and pull out a waste oil tank. They say soil on the site is contaminated with chemicals like gasoline, diesel, and heavy oil.

They demolished the building last October and took five storage tanks out of the ground.

You can submit comments by mailing them to:

Yakima, WA 98902-3452.

 

You can also email them to Mary.Monahan@ecy.wa.gov.
