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
