The I & J Waterway cleanup site is about 2.5 acres in Bellingham Bay, between Hilton Avenue and Bellwether Way. The port and the state of Washington own property within the site. The work is being done according to the state's
voter-approved cleanup law, the Model Toxics Control Act, and is
overseen by the Department of EcologyPortions of the site were used for lumber mill operations from the early 1900s through 1972. Other industries within the site boundaries included a rock-crushing plant and frozen food processing plant. A seafood processing plant has been in operation there since 1959.
I & J Waterway is one of the 12 cleanup sites in the Bellingham Bay Demonstration Pilot - a multi-agency, collaborative effort to cleanup pollution, control pollution sources, restore habitat and carry out land use plans throughout the bay.
