Public Comment Period Closed February 7 

The Department of Ecology and the City of Bothell are proposing to remove the environmental covenants for two tax parcels in downtown Bothell covering the Bothell Paint and Decorating, Former Hertz, and Bothell Landing sites. These sites are among six sites in downtown Bothell that have received grant funding from Ecology to help with the cost of cleanup. All petroleum contaminated sources have been removed and Ecology has determined that any remaining naturally occurring arsenic and petroleum degradation products do not pose any threat to human health and the environment.

Ecology accepted public comment from January 19 - February 7. Review the fact sheet for more information about the project and check back for responses to comments received during the comment period.
