The Island: On Point: A few quick points


Quick note about a kind of important thing: Representatives from the Navy and the regulatory agencies in charge of overseeing the cleanup at Alameda Point will make a presentation about cleanup activities to date at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 6 at Mastick Senior Center, 1155 Santa Clara Avenue. The presentation, of course, is free and open to the public.

The federal government has spent $239.2 million to date cleaning up contaminants at the Point, with another $122 million slated to be spent in 2011 and beyond. So far, the Navy has transferred or is set to transfer 40 percent of the base, while another 35 percent is undergoing active cleanup and 25 percent is under investigation for future cleanup.
