Natural Resource Damages Along the Duwamish Waterway

Boeing agreed to undertake two habitat restoration projects in Washington State to settle its liability for damages caused by the release of hazardous substances from Boeing facilities along the Duwamish Waterway. The natural resource trustees – the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Department of the Interior, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Washington State Department of Ecology, the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Suquamish Tribe and the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe – filed a federal lawsuit alleging natural resource damages under the Superfund statute, the Clean Water Act, the Oil Pollution Act, and Washington’s Model Toxics Control Act. Pursuant to the settlement, Boeing will create habitat for several fish and bird species, will repay almost $2 million of the natural resource trustees’ costs, and will pay $360,000 to establish a permanent stewardship fund for the projects.
