NSTI is safe for residents, employees and visitors.
Multiple regulatory agencies have concluded that even as cleanup requirements at NSTI evolved, there was no risk to human health and safety in residential areas from subsurface objects discovered through the environmental cleanup program. These findings were also confirmed with independent evaluations by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
While there are certain areas of NSTI that are still undergoing investigation and cleanup, those areas have physical barriers in place to prevent public access. If radiological objects are discovered, they are removed and properly disposed.
The Navy’s protocols and the data are reviewed by state regulators, including the CDPH, State Water Board, and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC). Their overarching role in monitoring the Navy’s work is to ensure the safety of human health and the restoration of the environment. The Navy values the health and safety of the community and will continue to transparently provide information on the remaining cleanup by sharing important updates through the Restoration Advisory Board (RAB), quarterly meetings, BRAC website, newsletters and public notices.
