"Dear Bayview Hunters Point community member and fellow San Francisco residents, we wanted to provide you with a summary of our technical experts review of the Parcel E2 landfill. The US Navy has proposed a capping and containment approach as the long-term remedy for the Parcel E2 landfill in Hunter’s Point Shipyard in their Draft Record of Decision. A cap is an engineered top placed on a landfill to prevent human and environmental exposure. In this case, the Navy is proposing to construct the cap of a geosynthetic liner and two feet of clean soil. As part of this remedy, the Navy will also remove and dispose contaminated soil in certain areas, separate and dispose of materials and soil with radiological contamination, install below- ground barriers to limit groundwater flow from the landfill, install a rock wall along the shoreline, and provide long-term maintenance and monitoring of the landfill.

"Arc Ecology, as the community technical advisor to the India Basin Neighborhood Association under their US EPA Technical Assistance Grant (TAG), hired three technical experts, Mark Wheeler (Landfill Expert) Steve Bump, (Radiation Specialist), and Greg Brorby, Toxicologist (Risk Assessment)) to conduct an independent technical review of Parcel E2. Parcel E2 is considered by many to be the most contaminated and controversial parcel in the Navy’s Hunter Point Shipyard Cleanup Program."
