Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Alameda Point (CA) update
Point Cleanup on Track, Navy Says

April 8, 2010

At last Tuesday evening's Alameda Reuse and Rehabilitation (ARRA) confab Councilmember Frank Matarrese presented highlights of the last Alameda Point Restoration and Advisory Board (RAB) meeting held on March 4.

Matarrese told the council that the Navy is continuing to remove and replace radioactively contaminated storm-drain lines that run from buildings 5 and 400 and discharge into the Seaplane Lagoon - work the Navy must finish before tackling the cleanup of the contaminated sediment in the lagoon itself. The Navy says that it is preparing to sample the sediment in the lagoon to aid in the removal of any radioactive sediment.

The Navy also reported that its contractors have excavated and disposed of contaminated soil around an incinerator once located at the corner of Main Street and West Tower Avenue. Contractors continue to treat petroleum-contaminated groundwater near the entrance to the old base at Atlantic Avenue.
