BELLINGHAM, Wash. – People can get a look at a cleanup plan this week for a contaminated piece of property on Bellingham’s waterfront.

The state and the Port of Bellingham’s plan for the former Weldcraft Steel and Marine site calls for capping the tainted soil with buildings, foundations and pavement.

Contaminated sediments under the water were removed a few years ago. This plan is for the rest of property.

The state will pay about half of the $610,000 bill.

Starting Wednesday, people can comment on the plan on the Department of Ecology’s website.
