U.S. Navy Base Realignment and Closure Project Management Office
Former Naval Station Treasure Island (Treasure Island) still remains under federal ownership and is currently being remediated by the United States Navy, other than areas that have been transferred to Caltrans in connection with the Bay Bridge eastern span project. The Navy is legally required to complete all of its environmental remediation obligations, including radiological cleanup, prior to transferring any property to the Treasure Island Development Authority (TIDA). The Navy’s environmental remediation program is separate from TIDA's Treasure Island Development Project.
The Navy provides residents of Treasure Island and the general public with information on its environmental remediation program through a variety of means as part of its ongoing Community Relations Program. Since 1994, the Navy has been holding Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meetings on Treasure Island that are open to the public, and post final copies of RAB meeting minutes and handouts on their website. Copies of agendas and meeting materials are mailed out to anyone requesting to be on the RAB mailing list. Navy staff and contractors attend each RAB meeting to provide an update on all of its environmental activities, including radiological cleanup, and to answer questions from residents and members of the public.
The Navy also distributes an environmental program newsletter to all Treasure Island residents at least once a year. In addition, the Navy posts an annual update to its Site Management Plan (SMP) on their website, which provides a comprehensive status and schedule for each of the remediation sites in the Navy's environmental program. A general Navy Environmental Program Fact Sheet, a synopsis of the SMP, is also updated regularly and includes a map and list of all remediation sites, a list of contaminants for each site, and the status of the Navy's remediation activities. The general Fact Sheet is also posted to the Navy website.
California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC)

DTSC Toll Free Number is: 1-866-495-5651 (Radhika Majhail, Public Participation).
