Hazardous materials & solid waste

Use this information to investigate, sample, and comply with local and federal laws to safely manage and dispose of hazardous materials like lead, creosote, asbestos, chemically contaminated sediment, releases from underground storage tanks, or other solid waste.

Conduct Hazardous Materials (HazMat) investigations and sampling to identify potential contamination in work areas and document risks.

Use Ecology's Facility/Site Atlas to identify Ecology regulated facilities (Federal Superfund/NPL sites, SHWS/CSCS, LUST and USTs) and solid waste facilities (landfills and transfer stations) in or adjacent to the project area.

Slow down – lives are on the line.

In 2022, speeding continued to be a top reason for work zone crashes.

Even one life lost is too many.

Each year about 670 people are killed nationally in highway work zones. In 2022, Washington had six fatal work zone crashes on state roads.

It's in EVERYONE’S best interest.

95% of people hurt in work zones are drivers, their passengers or passing pedestrians, not just our road crews.
