Alameda Point forum to target toxins in soil

ALAMEDA -- Several months after the U.S. Navy removed toxic soil near
housing at Alameda Point, residents worried about health impacts from
the contaminants will have an opportunity to speak with environmental
experts today.

The Alameda Point Collaborative -- the nonprofit operating 200 units on
34 acres at the former Navy base -- is sponsoring an "environmental open
house" from 4 to 8 p.m. in the mural room at the collaborative's
headquarters, 677 West Ranger Ave.

As part of the base cleanup project to prepare the land for development,
the Navy this summer removed polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH's) at
several locations throughout neighborhoods at Alameda Point.

The soil is gone, but questions linger.
