Navy Avoids Full Cleanup Responsibility by Susan Galleymore Alameda Sun (CA) April 26, 2013More than two dozen residents attended the Navy's public comment meeting held in the Main Library on April 9. The meeting addressed the Navy's reversal of an earlier decision to remove contamination from the "burn area" of the former waste dump on the northwestern tip of Alameda Point
The Navy's new plan, Alternative BA-1, leaves contaminants in place topped with a soil cover and installs a waste-isolation bulkhead to reduce the fl ow of contaminants into the bay.
Residents' comments indicate uniform disapproval of the change. One speaker said that predecessors may not have understood potential damage when they improperly disposed hazardous wastes but our generation has the awareness and the technology to make better choices.
