SITE DESCRIPTION

Today's Family Dentistry is the site of a former dental office. The site is located in northeast Vancouver, Washington, and the parcel is zoned community commercial.  The property is approximately 0.8 acres and consists of a commercial building, parking lot, and a grass area. The site is located on the west side of NE 112th Ave, south of NE Burton Road, and east of I-205.


CLEANUP SITE HISTORY

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. In 2014, Ecology put the site on the Hazardous Sites List based on preliminary sampling information. Ecology ranked the site as a 2 (moderate-high risk) out of 5, with 1 representing the highest relative risk and 5 representing the lowest relative risk.

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.

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. Ecology reviewed the cleanup work and determined the site met state cleanup levels.

In 2018, Ecology made a no further action determination for the site and proposed to remove it from the Hazardous Sites List.  Ecology held a comment period on the proposal from December 24, 2018 to January 25, 2019 and there were no comments submitted during the comment period. In 2019, Ecology removed the site from the Hazardous Sites List.
