Port of Everett

A Committed Port, A Cleaner Port

As outlined in its mission statement, the Port of Everett strives to provide good environmental management to assure continued, and where feasible, enhanced ecological functioning and productivity of Port Gardner Bay and the Snohomish River estuary. Environmental management programs are used to preserve estuarine habitats on Jetty Island and for bald eagle habitat on Port properties. In addition, restoration plans for Union Slough and Biringer Farm are being developed to enhance or create additional wildlife habitat and to anticipate the need for future mitigation actions.

The Port also participates in key environmental programs such as the Environmental Management System (EMS), Department of Ecology Diesel Emission Reduction Program and the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency’s Maritime Emissions Reduction Program.
