[Environmental Cleanup] Community Involvement Plan Update, Alameda Point, March 2010
The Department of Defense (DoD) is committed to early and meaningful community
participation. This Community Involvement Plan (CIP) outlines various methods the
Department of the Navy will employ to involve the community in the cleanup process at the former Naval Air Station (NAS) Alameda in Alameda, California.
The Navy’s Installation Restoration (IR) Program was developed to comply with the provisions of Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) by identifying, investigating, remediating or controlling releases of hazardous substances and reducing risk to human health and the environment. This CIP has been specifically prepared in support of the cleanup being conducted at NAS Alameda, now commonly referred to as Alameda Point. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC), and the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board (Water Board) provide regulatory oversight.
