Little Squailicum Creek Contaminated Materials Clean Up

Polluted soil and sediment from Little Squalicum Creek will be dug up, moved nearby to The Oeser Co. property and covered under a $1.5 million cleanup that the Environmental Protection Agency expects to start in August.

The plan includes possibly setting aside the existing upper part of the creek - upstream from the Marine Drive Bridge - as backup storage for the contaminated material, according to the EPA.

The EPA hopes to start the actual cleanup on Aug. 18, although the federal agency is still finalizing details such as access agreements. But crews will be at the park within the next two weeks for preliminary brush clearing and soil sampling.  The cleanup is expected to take six weeks. During it, the main trail through the park will be closed and beach access will be affected.

Details: Call Howard Orlean, EPA superfund project manager, at (206) 553-2851, or JeanneO'Dell, community involvement coordinator, at (206) 553-6919.More on the cleanup: Go online to go.usa.gov/ltk and scroll down to Little Squalicum Creek.

PARK USE LIMITED

Beginning the first week of August, the main trail through Little Squalicum Park will be closed to the public during the Environmental Protection Agency's cleanup of polluted Little Squalicum Creek. That trail starts at Bellingham Technical College and ends at Little Squalicum Beach.

Another side trail will be closed for parts of the cleanup. Beach access will be affected as well.A detour route will be marked and warning signs will be posted during the cleanup, which is expected to last about six weeks.

The park will not be closed during the cleanup, as EPA indicated in a postcard sent out about an Aug. 5 open house to discuss the cleanup.  Details: 778-7000.
