PORT GAMBLE — Pope Resources has been given a deadline of Monday to sign a cleanup agreement for Port Gamble Bay or face an enforcement order from the state. Except for a single sticking point, Pope Resources and the Washington Department of Ecology have come to terms on a $17 million cleanup plan to remove 1,800 creosote pilings, excavation of intertidal areas and dredging of up to 45,000 cubic yards of wood waste from the bottom of the harbor. Some areas would receive a 4-foot-thick cap of clean sediments to contain remaining pollution, while other areas would get a 1-foot or 6-inch cap.
