INDIAN ISLAND, Jefferson County ? After more than 10 years on the
federal Superfund list of the nation's most contaminated sites, Naval
Magazine Indian Island has received a clean bill of health.

The Environmental Protection Agency announced the removal of the island
near Port Townsend from the list of tainted sites, meaning the EPA and
the state Department of Ecology consider the site of no significant
threat to public health or the environment.

It is the first complete Navy installation to be removed from the
Superfund list.
