SEATTLE — The Coast Guard is scheduled to host a public open house on Thursday, Sept. 21, at the Greater Hansville Community Center to discuss proposed cleanup activities to address lead-contaminated soil at the Point No Point Light Station property in Hansville, Kitsap County, Washington, Wednesday.
The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
In 2018, the Coast Guard conducted a site assessment of the Point No Point Light Station property and identified elevated concentrations of lead in the soil around the perimeter of the four existing light station buildings. These elevated levels likely originate from the historic use of lead-based paint on the exterior of the buildings.
The Coast Guard plans to oversee cleanup operations to address impacted soil, which are anticipated to begin in early 2024 and are expected to take about a month to complete.
Portions of the light station property would be closed to the public during the cleanup.
Dust suppression and air monitoring will be used to protect workers and nearby residents during any ground-disturbing cleanup activities. The Coast Guard invites public comments on the planned cleanup and requests written comments to be sent by October 6, 2023, by mail to:
