AG: Navy dumps hazardous material into Puget Sound
SEATTLE — Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson says the U.S. Navy dumped hazardous waste, including copper and zinc, into Puget Sound and must be stopped from doing it again. The Seattle Times reports Ferguson's office notified the Navy Thursday of the state's intent to join a suit in federal court to ask the Navy to clean up the mess and to require it to stop scraping ships at Navy Base Kitsap and dumping the material in Sinclair Inlet.
