Department of Ecology removes Broadview apartment property from list of contaminated sites

The Department of Ecology has removed a Broadview apartment property from a statewide list of contaminated sites because it has met state cleanup standards.

The property, now mostly occupied by The Daniels apartments, but formerly occupied by Broadview Service, is located at 12250 Greenwood Ave. N. Soil at the 0.6-acre property contained petroleum compounds associated with underground storage tanks and auto servicing activities from 1923 to 1990.

The property owner removed nine underground tanks and excavated 2,450 cubic yards of contaminated soil in a 1990-1995 cleanup. The soil was treated on-site over time. Follow-up sampling showed that the soil meets state cleanup standards. The cleanup was evaluated under Ecology’s Voluntary Cleanup Program.

Ecology has determined that the site no longer poses a threat to human health or the environment and meets the requirements for removal from the department’s Hazardous Sites List. Before doing so, Ecology invites public comment until Feb. 8, 2016.
