EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — Workers are scrubbing mold and algae off the 120-foot-tall dome at the Port of Everett.
A crew from Sparkle Wash of Puget Sound began the five-day job Wednesday under a $14,000 contract with Lehigh Northwest Cement Co. It signed a 20-year lease for the dome in 2006, although it stopped storing cement powder there three years ago because of the poor economy.
The dome was previously used to store aluminum ore. It's a landmark on the Everett waterfront.
The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/VEShCR ) the power washing team met with health and safety officials before starting the job. Cleaning water is channeled into a sewer so it won't pollute Puget Sound.
