PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD DECEMBER 24, 2018-JANUARY 25, 2019

PROPOSED REMOVAL FROM THE HAZARDOUS SITES LIST

The Department of Ecology (Ecology) proposes removing the Today's Family Dentistry site from the Hazardous Sites List. Ecology invites your comments on the proposal during the public comment period.

Today's Family Dentistry is the site of a former dental office.  In 2010, Clark County Public Health and Ecology tested the on-site septic system and found the tank had waste metals typical of a dental office. Based on early sampling information, Ecology put the site on the Hazardous Sites List. To follow-up, in 2017 the property owner put four groundwater monitoring wells on the property to see if metal had moved to the soil and groundwater. Results showed that metals were below state cleanup levels.

The property owner, who had entered the Voluntary Cleanup Program, conducted the following cleanup activities at the site:

  • Tested and removed septic tank sludge.
  • Removed the septic tank from the property.
  • Connected the building to the city sewer system.

Ecology reviewed the cleanup work and determined that the site meets state cleanup levels.

The public may comment on the No Further Action letter for Today's Family Dentistry. Ecology will respond to comments and post the responses after the comment period. Ecology may withdraw the No Further Action determination based on comments given during the comment period. Otherwise, Ecology will remove the site from the Hazardous Sites List.
