The Department of Ecology invites you to comment on documents related to two cleanup sites in the Lower Issaquah Valley in King County.

  1. EFR HQ IVES (Eastside Fire & Rescue Headquarters and Issaquah Valley Elementary School)
  2. Rainier Trail & Memorial Field

These sites were identified due to releases of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to soil and groundwater. Investigations determined the likely source of PFAS is firefighting foam formerly used at the sites during lawful training activities. The potentially liable persons (PLPs) for the releases include the City of Issaquah (City) and Eastside Fire & Rescue (EF&R).

The site documents available for review and comment include:
