Washington (State) Department of Ecology News Release December 21, 2009 09-296 Grant to help Harbor-Works study possible purchase of Rayonier propertyOLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) today announced it is awarding a grant to the public development authority interested in purchasing the former Port Angeles Rayonier mill property.
Ecology's integrated planning grant will provide the Port Angeles Harbor-Works Development Authority (Harbor-Works) up to $200,000 to do a market analysis and "due diligence." This process involves studying existing technical documents about environmental contamination and doing additional work to help Harbor-Works make an informed decision about taking on the property. A scope of work defines the specific tasks Ecology agrees to reimburse.
"We feel it's important Harbor-Works and the public understand what would be entailed if it ends up purchasing the Rayonier property," said Rebecca Lawson, Ecology's regional lead for the toxic cleanup program. "The work they'll do under this planning grant should pave a solid path toward answering many critical questions."
The former Rayonier mill property in Port Angeles is one of Ecology's top toxic cleanup priorities. Ecology is currently negotiating with Rayonier on a new legal agreement (agreed order) for cleanup actions on the property and in the adjacent marine areas. Should Harbor-Works or any other entity acquire the mill property from Rayonier, they would be added to the agreed order as a responsible party.
