USAR Pier 23

The USACE has prepared a draft environmental assessment (EA) for proposed action at Pier 23 in Tacoma. The preferred alternative consists of replacement of an existing USAR pier, cleanup of adjacent and underlying contaminated sediment and slag. The USACE is accepting comments until March 19. The draft EA is available for download. Comments, questions or requests for more info may be made to Jeff Laufle, USACE, Environmental Resources Section.

Meanwhile, the US Army invites public comment on the same proposed plan for Pier 23 at a public meeting March 24, 6:30 -8:30 p.m. at the Fabulich Center, 3600 Port of Tacoma Road, Tacoma 98424. The Pierce 23 Proposed Plan is available at the US Army's website. For this agency, comments are due by April 2. For more info, contact Richard Mendoza.
