Alameda Sun: City Begs for EPA Intervention on Navy Mess


City officials, aghast at a Navy plan to shroud a toxic dump site at the former Naval Air Station Alameda with a thin layer of dirt, are calling on federal and state officials to intervene and clean up the site.

In a strongly worded letter, the Alameda Reuse and Redevelopment Authority said "fatal flaws" existed in proposed plans by the Navy to bury the site under four feet of dirt.
