Description The Washington State Department of Ecology is developing standardized methods called “model remedies” to clean up contaminated sites. Model remedies can help streamline and accelerate the pace of cleanups. This guidance document (often referred to as “Model Remedies for Soils”) discusses seven model remedies for sites that have only petroleum-contaminated soil.

This guidance was originally published as a draft in April 2015 and finalized in September 2015. It was revised again in August 2017. You’re invited to comment on this revised draft through September 22, 2017, by contacting Mark Gordon at or visiting the Draft for Public Comment website above.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
