Carnation Dairies Spokane: Hazardous Sites List removal

The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) invites you to comment on our proposal to remove the Carnation Dairies Spokane site from the Hazardous Sites List (HSL). The HSL includes all contaminated sites that have had their hazard ranked relative to other known contaminated sites in Washington. Sites are ranked on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 presenting the highest risk. This site, located at 444 West Cataldo in Spokane, was ranked a 5 due to lead, cadmium, and diesel contamination in soil.

In 1989, releases from underground tanks were discovered and excavated. When the Carnation Dairies garage was demolished in 1999, 74.5 tons of petroleum-contaminated soil related to the aboveground tank were disposed off-site. In 2019, soil was resampled as part of site redevelopment. Results showed contamination was below levels requiring further cleanup, so Ecology issued its no further action opinion.
