Sequim: Battelle marine lab studies future growth

SEQUIM — Battelle Northwest’s marine lab on Sequim Bay may soon be enlarged.

Officials from the marine lab have met with city, Clallam County and Clallam Public Utility District officials to discuss expansion, although Dick Ecker, director of Battelle’s Sequim operation, says the planning effort is in a “very preliminary” stage.

The Sequim Bay lab, according to Ecker, conducts research into the marine environment and has a $74 million contract with the federal Environmental Protection Agency to develop methods of studying 18,000 chemicals that could potentially damage reproductive abilities of humans and animals.

Sixty-five people are employed by Battelle in Sequim, which is located on 125 acres of land just south of Washington Harbor.
