Marine Trades Area, Port of Port Angeles

Floyd|Snider is assisting the Port of Port Angeles with redevelopment of the Marine Terminal Log Yard site adjacent to Port Angeles Harbor. This 5-acre site was the location of a former log yard historically used by major oil companies for bulk fuel storage that was redeveloped as a luxury yacht manufacturing facility. In 2000, Floyd|Snider prepared a current situation/ conceptual site model report to evaluate existing information regarding historical activities, environmental investigations, and implemented remedies for the site and nearby properties. Soil and groundwater contaminants include gasoline and diesel range petroleum hydrocarbons, pentachlorophenol, metals, methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), and other volatile and semivolatile compounds.

Floyd|Snider also assisted the Port of Port Angeles with the Washington State Department of Ecology negotiations regarding an Agreed Order for a Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) of the Marine Trades Area, which includes the Marine Terminal Log Yard site.  Further assistance to the Marine Trades Area Cleanup Group (comprised of the Port of Port Angeles, Chevron, Texaco, and ARCO) to prepare the RI/FS was also provided.

Floyd|Snider additionally provided environmental expertise in support of partial redevelopment of the Marine Terminal Log Yard site. This work involved conducting soil, groundwater, and soil vapor sampling in the planned building footprint area, designing a vapor barrier to control potential migration of contaminants into the future office area of the building, and assisting during construction to ensure that schedules were met.

Current work by Floyd|Snider involves conducting multiple phases of Geoprobe investigations to define sources of multiple commingled plumes, and studying the effect of tides upon contaminant fate and transport in support of the RI/FS.
