NPL Partial Site Deletion NarrativeTreasure Island Naval Air Station - Hunters Point Annex
San Francisco, California
On April 5, 1999, EPA deleted a portion of the Treasure Island Naval Station - Hunters Point Annex from the National Priorities List (NPL).
The Hunters Point Naval Shipyard Superfund site (HPS) is located on a promontory in southeastern San Francisco. The promontory is bounded on the north, east, and south by San Francisco Bay and on the west by the Bayview-Hunters Point district of the City of San Francisco. The entire HPS covers 936 acres, 493 of which are on land and 443 of which are under water. To facilitate the environmental investigation and remediation and ultimate transfer of the property to the City of San Francisco, HPS was divided into several parcels (Parcels A through F).
Parcel A, which covers approximately 88 acres, consists of the upland areas and a fraction of the lowlands of HPS. It is adjacent to the other portions of the HPS and the Bayview-Hunters Point district of San Francisco. Land to the northwest of Parcel A is used for residential purposes. The other HPS parcels that bound Parcel A are currently undergoing investigation and remediation for future redevelopment. Parcel A's boundaries extend up to Crisp Street and across Spear Avenue to the south, up to Griffith Street to the west, and up to Fisher Avenue and across Robinson Street and Galvez Avenue to the east. The north boundary of Parcel A is defined by a fence, which separates HPS from the Bayview-Hunters Point district of San Francisco. The proposed partial deletion pertains only to Parcel A of the HPS site. Parcels B, C, D, E and F will remain on the NPL, and cleanup activities will continue at these parcels. A GIS map and the exact coordinates that define the Parcel A partial deletion are contained in the NPL deletion docket.
EPA and the State of California have determined that all appropriate responses under CERCLA have been implemented, and no further cleanup is appropriate for Parcel A of HPS. Moreover, EPA and the State of California have determined that the remedial actions conducted on Parcel A to date remain protective of public health, welfare, and the environment.
