Who is responsible?

Boeing, the City of Seattle, King County, and the Port of Seattle have likely contributed to sediment contamination and/or are major landowners in the area. They have agreed to do studies to determine the extent of contamination in Duwamish sediments and what needs to be cleaned up. In addition, other industries on the river are expected to be identified as PRPs.

All of the responsible parties identified will pay for the cleanup. But the question remains – what studies will be done, what kind of cleanup will we get, and how clean is clean? That’s where you, and the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition/Technical Advisory Group, come in.
