A long-awaited cleanup of Port Gamble Bay is just about ready to launch. Work is scheduled to start Monday, with the removal of old pilings treated with toxic creosote.

A number of other piers, docks and other structures also will be removed as the project progresses, and contaminated sediments and other muck will be dug out of the bay or capped with clean material.

The project is expected to continue into early 2017 and really provide a boost for the bay’s health — and for the Puget Sound environment in general.
