Port of Sunnyside Gets $300,000 Grant for Carnation Cleanup

Posted: Updated:

SUNNYSIDE, Wash. - The Washington Department of Ecology granted the Port of Sunnyside $300,000 to finish cleaning up pollution at the Carnation industrial milk processing plant.

The Department says the cleanup involves soil excavation and aggressive groundwater treatment to remove metals and solvents from the property. The funding will also allow the port to prepare the property for redevelopment.

The port will start cleanup this spring and hopes to be done by 2015.
