The article offers information on the cleanup of a brownfield area in Bremerton, Washington State by a combination of in-situ chemical oxidation and enhanced bioremediation technologies by Parametrix Inc. to be an extension of Evergreen Park. It says that the site formerly functioned as a petroleum products storage facility which resulted in large creosote pilings in the area. Furthermore, the site remediation process used RegenOx chemical oxidants and oxygen release compound (ORC) Advanced.
