Yakima Receives Grant to Evaluate Pollution
The city of Yakima will use a $200,000 state grant from the Washington Department of Ecology to evaluate pollution at the former Boise Cascade Mill site at 805 North 7th Street.
The study will evaluate soil and groundwater on the site.
The funding will also allow a first step toward redevelopment of the property.
The city expects to complete the work by the end of the year.
The $200,000 in funding for the project comes from the state's voter-approved tax on hazardous substances.
