It could take more than two years before a clean-up of the C Street Landfill site begins. “We could get the clean-up in three, four, five years, but it all depends on what we find,” said Jason Landskron, state Department of Ecology cleanup project manager for the C Street site, on Tuesday night.
If contamination is found outside of the 16.7-acre landfill boundaries, that would add time to the already complicated data-gathering process, he said.
Landskron said the actual clean-up is always the shorter process. He said the site could be capped with thick plastic and left intact if no toxins are found outside the site’s boundaries and there is no impact to the aquifer.
