An unexpected runoff of asphalt-type material washed into Burnt Bridge Creek near St. James Road and state Route 500 following rain on Friday.
City of Vancouver Public Works stormwater staff assisted Doolittle Construction, a joint agency pavement-preservation contractor, on cleanup efforts. City stormwater operations crew isolated catch basins, installed absorbent booms in the creek and cleared out drainage lines to prevent any residual material from entering the creek.
Doolittle Construction deployed an environmental remediation company Friday to install additional booms and continue cleanup efforts, according to a media release from Vancouver Public Works on Saturday. The company will continue to work with the Washington State Department of Ecology to fix any remaining issues.
