The Port of Camas-Washougal has received a $200,000 grant that could lead to the cleanup of the former Hambleton Lumber Company site.
Port Executive Director David Ripp announced receipt of the grant from the Washington Department of Ecology during the July 5 port commission meeting.
Commissioners are expected to approve a professional services agreement with Maul, Foster and Alongi July 19. The consulting firm would analyze the site and determine a cleanup plan.
According to Ripp, the port is exploring the opportunity to acquire, cleanup and redevelop property along the waterfront that extends east of its existing marina and connects to port-owned property at Sixth Street in Washougal.
Goals for the project include cleaning up historical contamination, providing public access to the waterfront, restoring riparian habitat and connecting port land holdings to the east and west.
