Caltrans Must Pay $13.5 Million for Contaminating Presidio Lake Environment News Service November 17, 2011 (ENS)SAN FRANCISCO, California - The California Department of Transportation has agreed to pay $13.5 million to the federal government to resolve claims brought by the Presidio Trust and the U.S. Army concerning Caltrans' construction and operation of Highway 1, also known as Park Presidio Boulevard, through the Presidio of San Francisco.
The settlement resolves the United States' claims for breach of a 1938 permit that authorized Caltrans to build Highway 1 through the Presidio and required Caltrans to repair any damage caused by construction and operation of the highway.
The United States filed an action in federal court in January 2009 alleging that runoff from Highway 1 has contaminated Mountain Lake sediment containing lead, copper, zinc and other substances, and that highway drainage facilities are in need of repair or replacement.
