Comment Time for A Ave Landfill

April 3, 2024

The Washington Department of Ecology has issued an Agreed Order which requires the City of Anacortes (City) to monitor and address the contamination at the old city landfill located within the boundaries of the Anacortes Community Forest Lands (ACFL). As you remember, City Parks and Recreation Department planned to create a bike skills park on the six acre site, which prompted public concern over the reuse of the old city dump within the ACFL and potential seepage of toxic contaminants.

A PUBLIC MEETING will be held April 15, 2024 at 4 PM in Anacortes City Hall. The presentation begins at 4 PM, followed by a public comment period. You may also choose to participate inline by registering here.

You can COMMENT on the proposed Agreed Order for monitoring, assessment and potential cleanup here.
