Alameda Point Environmental Report: Environmental cleanup meeting tonight, March 22, 2018


The Navy will make a presentation on the status of its radiological investigation and cleanup at the next Alameda Point Restoration Advisory Board meeting, which will be held Thursday, March 22, 2018. The meeting is open to the public and begins at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room at 950 W. Mall Square on Alameda Point.

Multiple sites became contaminated with paint waste that contained radium-226, an element used in making aircraft dials glow in the dark.

“The Navy has made significant progress cleaning up environmental contamination at the former Naval Air Station Alameda,” said Cecily Sabedra, Environmental Coordinator for the Navy. “The environmental program is mature, with only one cleanup decision plan remaining. The public will have an opportunity to comment on this plan in spring 2018.”
