Sequim: Gas station work delayed for environmental review

SEQUIM — An oversight in a state Environmental Protection Act review has resulted in a temporary construction delay of a new service station.

“We’ve had to do an additional checklist,” city Planning Director Richard Hendricksen said, confirming the size of an underground fuel storage tank triggered the action.

After receiving a call from the state Department of Ecology, project developers voluntarily stopped work on construction of the new Safeway service station in the Washington Plaza Shopping Center.

The State Environmental Protection Act deficiency was brought to Hendricksen’s attention by a concerned citizen during a City Planning Commission meeting Aug. 7.

The same individual, Judy Larson, also notified Ecology officials of the oversight.
