  • EPA - Proposed Plan for the East Waterway Cleanup

    Available for Public Comment Starting April 28! The United States Environmental Protection Agency is requesting public comment on the Proposed Cleanup Plan for the 157-acre East Waterway Operable Unit of the Harbor Island Superfund Site in Seattle, Washington. EPA will accept public comments on the Proposed Plan for 60 days, starting on April 28, 2023. Please visit EPA’s Harbor Island website for updated information about the East Waterway Proposed Plan, including how to provide public comments: What is EPA’s Preferred Cleanup Alternative in the Proposed Plan? EPA’s primary objective is to reduce contaminant concentrations in the sediment of the East Waterway to levels that are protective of human health and the environment. As a result, EPA is proposing an aggressive remedy that includes a combination of technologies to address the entire East Waterway Operable Unit and would actively clean up approximately 121 acres of contaminated sediments over a period of about 10 years. This would be an interim remedy, meaning that EPA will select cleanup levels after active cleanup activities have concluded and source control efforts can be evaluated. This preferred alternative aligns with EPA’s long-term vision for the East Waterway Operable Unit, which is to obtain the lowest contaminant levels possible in sediments to reduce contaminant concentrations in fish tissue, to include achieving sediment PCB concentrations equivalent to the concentrations measured in the non-urban background for Puget Sound (i.e., 2 parts per billion PCBs). Achieving this will rely both on an effective cleanup of the East Waterway Operable Unit and robust source control efforts throughout the Green/Duwamish River watershed using a range of federal, state, and local regulatory authorities.

  • Garden Walk | GCC Seattle

    Garden Walk The Georgetown Garden Walk is on the second Sunday in July, 10am to 5pm. The Walk is a free self-guided tour, free maps will be available at the Georgetown branch of the Bank of America parking lot located at 1112 South Bailey St, Seattle, WA 98108. No reservation or tickets are needed. A brief history of the Georgetown Garden Walk wouldn’t be complete without exploring Georgetown’s colorful past. June 1851, the first homesteaders to King County settled next to a small village of the Duwamish people in a valley clearing along the loops of the river. The meadow’s fertile soil was a perfect match for these hardy farmers, orchardist, cattle, and dairy folk. Over the years the Duwamish village became the platted town of Georgetown and then a city of 7000. On March 29, 1910, Georgetown held a special election to be annexed to Seattle. After the votes were tallied the brewery whistle was heard throughout the streets and fields; Georgetown’s became a Seattle neighborhood. Georgetown has had good times and bad, but through it all we’ve remained a neighborhood who loves to garden. Aviation and industrial expansion left Georgetown’s residential core a fraction of its original size. The idea of a garden tour was developed to showcase green thumbs and community spirit. On a perfect summer day in 1996 the first Garden Walk launched with 50 people in attendance. The Garden Walk resonated with fellow gardeners. A walkable tour with 30+ gardens and nurseries, which reflected a distinctive Georgetown style and personality. Most gardens are a typical Seattle lot size and often feature creative uses of reclaimed and found objects.
