Fresh off a $300,000 grant to clean up Sunnyside's old Carnation plant, the Port of Sunnyside inked a contract to get the project started.
That's the result of action last Friday by port commissioners in approving a contract with the firm Maul Foster and Alongi not to exceed $83,850.
The contract calls for the Seattle-based company to design and oversee remediation of the plant property located at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and South First Street. The firm will also conduct a study to review options for remedying groundwater issues at the site.
The idea is to eventually clean up solvent and metal contamination at the plant to prepare it for eventual use for future business or industry in Sunnyside.
Under terms of the deal, the contract is in effect for 60 days.
