Pope Resources Announces Agreement On Port Gamble Clean-Up

The negotiations between Pope Resources and Ecology also included extensive discussions on a voluntary Natural Resource Damages (NRD) assessment entailing restoration projects on and around the former Pope & Talbot millsite. These discussions were not conclusive and the parties agreed to end negotiations. A separate process to determine any potential NRD liability will be forthcoming.

As part of its effort to redevelop the historic town of Port Gamble, Pope Resources is preparing an application to build a new community dock to serve the town and local community. As part of this application, the company wanted to delay the removal of two small docks used by current mill site tenants as mitigation for the new dock. The company has agreed to remove these docks as part of the clean-up effort, but to stage the timing of the removal to 2015. By phasing the removal of these docks within the broader clean-up effort, the company will be able to apply for advanced mitigation credit as part of its new dock application.

“I want to thank everyone involved in this for working long and hard to reach a conclusion to these negotiations that will allow for the final phase of Port Gamble’s clean-up to commence,” said David Nunes, Pope Resources’ President and CEO. “I particularly want to thank Maia Bellon from the Department of Ecology, who in her first weeks in office as Director of that agency brought a focused effort on reaching an equitable resolution to this complex clean-up project. We are also grateful to our 23 rd District legislators and Congressman Derek Kilmer who were instrumental in obtaining the funding to protect and restore Port Gamble Bay and still remain very involved.”
