The Washington State Department of Ecology has been working on cleaning up the soil in Burien’s Dottie Harper Park, and we found an update on their website.

“This work is part of the Soil Safety Program, which cleans up park, school, childcare, and camp play areas contaminated by air emissions from the old Asarco smelter in Tacoma,” states their website.

To give you an idea of what Ecology’s program looks like, here is a series of photos and captions they posted showing their work in Dottie Harper Park (click images to see larger versions/slideshow):
