From our sister site The Normandy Park Blog:

An oil sheen was discovered on Arrow Lake in Normandy Park on Thursday, June 7, and after some investigation the source of the spill was found to have come from the city.

A person with property on the lake first alerted the Washington State Department of Ecology about the spill Thursday. Ecology responded and saw a sheen along the southwest shoreline, about 100 yards by 20 feet. They took a sample and sent it to the lab, then deployed oil spill cleanup material.

“We collaborated with Normandy Park Public Works staff,” Ecology’s Larry Altose told The Normandy Park Blog. “On Thursday night he was unable to identify a source after checking the lake’s tributary storm drains.”
