toxic waste

The U.S. Navy recently published a draft of its work plan for 37-acre industrial waste dump on the northwest corner of Alameda Point. Installation Restoration Site 1 operated from 1943 to 1956 and contains tons of waste. These included not only household wastes, but solvents, unexploded ordnance, flattened drums, engines, aircraft parts, heavy metals, radium and other radioactive wastes discarded from the Navy’s industrial aircraft repair operations.
