Bellingham waterfront cleanup site tour: I&J Waterway

September 13, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Aerial view of Bellingham waterfront, I and J street cleanup site

Join us for a tour of the I&J Waterway cleanup site! This site along Bellingham’s waterfront has been used by timber mills, an olivine rock crushing facility, and a seafood processing plant, which left contaminated sediments threatening marine life and our community’s health.

You can access a fact sheet and see how to comment on this phase of the cleanup on the Dept. of Ecology’s website here.

RSVP here

Wednesday, September 13th from 12- 1:30 pm. Park and meet at the gravel parking lot at 34 Bellwether Way, Bellingham (located across the street from the paved Port of Bellingham parking lot).

This is part of an ongoing tour series of the 12 Bellingham waterfront cleanup sites listed under Washington’s Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA), which contain contaminants like heavy metals and petroleum byproducts left from over 100 years of heavy industry — an era which ended with the closure of the Georgia-Pacific pulp mill in 2007.

Hear from agency officials and RE Sources scientists on the area’s historical uses, sources of contamination, the MTCA cleanup process, and the possible future of the site.

Reach out to Eleanor Hines ( with any questions.

This product is funded through a Public Participation Grant from the Department of Ecology.
