The Island: Navy offers annual toxic site tour at Alameda Point


About 50 people turned out Saturday for the Navy’s annual Alameda Point tour. The tour offered participants to see four toxic hot spots at the Point, which is a Superfund site, and to learn more about the Navy’s efforts to clean up the base.

The four stops on the fully booked bus tour included visits to some of the more complex and controversial cleanup areas at the former Naval Air Station, including the Seaplane Lagoon and a former landfill location known in Superfund-speak as Installation Restoration Site 1.
