The Alameda Point Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) will meet Thursday, Oct. 6, at 6:30 p.m. at 950 W. Mall Square on Alameda Point.
The agenda (see PDF at right) includes a report from Mary Parker on groundwater contamination cleanup in IR-02/OU-5, an area east of Main Street near Marina Village, Shinsei Gardens and Bayport. Remediation efforts have focused on potential long-term risks from benzene and naphthalene, including if the groundwater were to be used in the future.
The site is considered safe for children, residents and others as there are no drinking water wells in this area, and water service to the homes and other buildings is provided by the East Bay Municipal Utility District, according to a 2008 Navy fact sheet.
The public is welcome to attend the meeting and talk directly with the Navy and regulatory agency representatives. Board meetings are held the first Thursday of every month.
