Tour a Bellingham waterfront cleanup site (and the future Salish Landing Park space)

February 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Between Boulevard Park and downtown Bellingham, trees were milled, stored and chemically treated for decades. Now, the RG Haley site is being cleaned up to become a public park three times larger than Boulevard Park.

Tuesday, February 27th from 12–1:30 p.m. Meet at Cornwall Beach (100 Pine St STE 202, Bellingham) 

RSVP today

You might recognize this site as you walk along the South Bay Trail between Boulevard Park and downtown Bellingham — it is the site just north of those prominent white tarps. Chemicals used to treat wood there, such as pentachlorophenol and petroleum hydrocarbons, are present in soil, groundwater and marine sediments at potentially harmful levels.

Hear from staff at the Department of Ecology, Port of Bellingham, and RE Sources about the site’s future and have your questions answered! During this Ecology public comment period (Feb. 12th to March 12th), you can have a say in how the Washington State Department of Ecology might address the contaminants.
