The California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) was enacted in 1970 in response to the awareness that the environmental impacts of a development project in planning must be carefully considered to avoid hazardous, costly and unanticipated damage to human health, safety, property and the environment.


The proposal for the early (dirty) transfer of shipyard Parcels D and E, the most hazardous of the six land regions on the former naval base, means that, as early as 2010, the Federal Fire Department will no longer claim jurisdiction over radiation impacted property containing an active landfill and soils contaminated with lead, asbestos, toxic metals, pesticides and PCBs.


A major component of the project is a new 69,000-seat 49ers stadium sited on shipyard Parcel D in a region that is the site of radiation contaminated soils, buildings, animal kennels and laboratories – remnants of the post World War II premier radiation laboratory in the U.S., the Naval Radiological Defense Laboratories.
