A settlement has been reached with the city of Seattle, Washington, to resolve its liability for injured natural resources at the Lower Duwamish Waterway Superfund Site in Seattle by funding restoration projects, the Justice Department announced today.  To restore the natural resources, the city of Seattle has purchased restoration credits from Bluefield Holdings, a company that develops restoration projects.  This is the first natural resource damages settlement to fund restoration through the purchase of credits in restoration projects developed by a restoration development company.  Each of the contemplated restoration projects address natural resource injuries at the site and the trustees will oversee and ensure the projects are constructed and implemented appropriately.
