We protect and enhance the environment of Commencement Bay and the Puyallup River by continuing to clean up contaminated land, improve habitat and water quality, and minimize air emissions from Port operations.
We intend to grow responsibly to ensure continued trust in our collective future. Learn more about our environmental efforts to improve air and water quality and restore the land.
Over the years, we have successfully purchased, remediated and redeveloped multiple properties in the Tideflats. Through these and other efforts, the Port attracts new business and has grown existing business in the region.
Since the Port was founded in 1918, we have grown from 240 acres to 2,300+ acres in the Tideflats. Today, Port's marine cargo and real estate operations help support 42,000+ jobs and nearly $3 billion in economic activity. Find out more.
