Olympic View Sanitary Landfill
The Olympic View Sanitary Landfill site is in Kitsap County located at 10015 SW Barney White Road in Port Orchard, Washington. The landfill is west of the Bremerton National Airport and adjacent to the Port of Bremerton’s Olympic View Industrial Park.
The landfill occupies 65 acres of a 436 acre site. The landfill operated as a municipal sanitary landfill since 1963 under various private ownerships. Waste Management of Washington, Inc. (WM WA), is the current owner.
Since 1975, the landfill has operated under solid waste regulations and has both unlined and lined cells. The landfill closed in 2003 and is now conducts post-closure monitoring and maintenance under a permit issued by the Kitsap Public Health District.
Groundwater contamination at the Site prompted investigation and improvements to operations at the landfill. WM WA conducted a Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study which were documented in reports made available to the public for review and comment in November 2010. Ecology prepared a draft Cleanup Action Plan which was also available for public review at that time.
The selected cleanup action for the Site is described in the Cleanup Action Plan and includes:
In June 2011, Ecology and WM WA signed an Agreed Order for implementing the Cleanup Action Plan. Attachments to the Order include the Cleanup Action Plan and an Environmental (Restrictive) Covenant that establishes limitations on the use of the landfill property.
