Cleaning up the TC Systems Inc Site
The Port acquired the Norton Industries property in 2019 to expand its land holdings in a critical location of the Waterfront Place Central Marine Craftsman District. As part of the acquisition, the Port took on a relatively small but ongoing formal cleanup site known as TC Systems — referring to a former leasehold operated by a company named TC Systems. In the acquisition, the estimated costs to accomplish the cleanup were considered in the purchase price. While the cleanup process has not yet been completed at this site, it is well on its way, having conducted studies and two interim cleanup actions. Coming up in 2021, the Port will work with the Department of Ecology on the Remedial Investigation and Feasibility Study, which will select the preferred cleanup option for the site.
