Washington State Department of Ecology requests public comments on the proposed removal of Stutz Oil from the Hazardous Sites List
Cleanup is complete at the
Stutz Oil site located at 3003 Harborview Drive in Gig Harbor. The
Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) invites your comments on the
proposed removal of the site from the State’s Hazardous Sites List and removal
of an environmental covenant (EC) which restricts development activities.
Comments will be accepted
from April 16 to May 16, 2018.
The site formerly
contained five above-ground fuel storage tanks (ASTs). Gasoline and
diesel from the ASTs leaked into soil and groundwater. Cleanup was
conducted by the property owners under Ecology’s Voluntary Cleanup
Program. As a result of the residual contaminated soil left in place, an
EC was issued in 2009. Additional cleanup was conducted in 2017.
Samples taken after the 2017 cleanup indicate that contaminant concentrations
in soil and groundwater were either below State cleanup levels or below
laboratory detection limits.
Read more about the site,
including the No Further Action Letter that describes how cleanup was done and
why we believe it is complete at Ecology’s Stutz Oil website.

described here are available at two document repositories starting April 16:
