In 2013, the Washington Legislature approved Senate Bill
5296, which made significant changes to the Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA).
Among those changes, Ecology was required to provide the Governor and the
appropriate Legislative Committees a report on the status of developing model
remedies and their use under MTCA. The Washington State Department of Ecology
submitted the report to the Governor and Legislature on January 4, 2017.
Jim Pendowski, Manager of Ecology’s Toxics Cleanup
Program, will discuss the highlights of the report including: The number and types of model remedies
established by Ecology; The number and types of model remedy proposals prepared
by qualified private sector engineers, consultants or contractors that were
accepted or rejected; and the success of
model remedies in accelerating cleanups.
The report is now available on Ecology’s website: Click Here
