East Bay Cleanup

The work proposed for 2017 is the remaining cleanup of parcels that make up the East Bay Redevelopment Site in downtown Olympia. This will leave clean properties that are ready for redevelopment.

Budd Inlet Environmental Cleanup

The purpose of this project is to evaluate and clean up the sediments throughout Budd Inlet, including both the East Bay and West Bay. Under a separate project, the evaluations regarding the extent and classification of sediment is being completed. This project will require several funding partners, including the City of Olympia, Washington Department of Ecology, and various industries. This is a multi-year project.

East Bay Trail Improvements 

The eastern side of the port Peninsula has the East Bay walking trail running the length of it.  Certain areas of the trail experience regular disposal of hazardous materials (hypodermic needles, human waste, garbage) and have visibility issues that cause safety concerns for the public.  It has been noticed that areas around the boatworks pond are being used for drug use and are attracting illegal activities and trail users feel unsafe.  The intent of this project is to evaluate the properties and recommend changes to the areas that would reduce health and safety concerns.

Habitat Conservation Plan

Work in collaboration with the City of Tumwater, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife Service and other entities to develop a Habitat Conservation Plan compliant with the Endangered Species Act.
