Alameda Sun: Up on Cleanup?, October 27, 2011


The environmental cleanup program at Alameda Point, which has been going on for more than a decade, is in its final stages. Most of the issues have been addressed, and the contaminated sites have either been cleaned up or are on their way to being cleaned up. Learn more by attending a special presentation at the upcoming Alameda Reuse and Redevelopment Authority (ARRA) meeting next Wednesday, Nov 2 at city hall.

Peter Russell, Ph.D., a California registered engineer and a registered environmental assessor, will make the presentation. He has been working as an advisor to the city on Alameda Point cleanup issues for more than 10 years and has specialized training in environmental law, business management and insurance/ risk management.

Russell will provide an overview of the environmental issues encountered at Alameda Point, clarify the roles of the Navy and the regulators in this work, and highlight the progress the Navy has made in completing the cleanup so that the transfer to the ARRA can occur.
