PORT ANGELES, WA, May 12, 2017 (Peninsula Daily News ) -Residents are irritated by the ongoing, two-decades-old environmental cleanup at the former 75.6 acre Rayonier pulp mill site and the adjacent waters of Port Angeles Harbor, they told state Department of Ecology officials.

The officials hosted an open-house presentation Tuesday at the Elwha Klallam Heritage Center on environmental cleanup-restoration sites in Port Angeles.

“There is a lot of frustration when everyone in the community sees that property sitting there and nothing happening,” said an unidentified woman from among the approximately 50 attending.
