Navy Begins Retesting Work at Shipyard’s Parcel B and Parcel C - Summer 2022

11 July 2022
The Navy has begun radiological retesting fieldwork at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard’s (HPNS) Parcel B and Parcel C. This work will ensure confidence in the current site conditions and assist with cleanup efforts for future transfer of the property to the City of San Francisco. The Navy’s goal with this work is to ensure public health and the long-term protectiveness of the site.
The fieldwork team started preparing for fieldwork in May 2022 and are scheduled to be completed in late 2023. Construction crews will set up fencing around controlled areas. The Navy contractor will perform radiological scanning of the excavated soils. Soil and building samples will also be collected for analysis. To accomplish this work, heavy equipment will be used to remove asphalt and excavate former sanitary sewer and storm drain trenches. 

After testing is completed, the Navy will provide a summary report to regulatory agencies for review. The retesting work will include multiple layers of Navy and regulatory agency oversight, on-site fieldwork monitoring conducted by the Navy Resident Officer in Charge of Construction, and an independent third-party contractor to provide quality assurance checks on radiological fieldwork.

The Navy will share results on these efforts and continue to keep the community updated on its cleanup work at HPNS.

Efforts to minimize disruptions
The Navy is taking several steps to minimizing community disruption during this process. These steps include utilizing dust control measures and real-time air monitoring.  Heavy equipment use will be limited to the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

The Navy is also taking steps to ensure access to artist buildings during construction. Entry gates, parking, and traffic routes will vary with active field work. For the most up-to-date information regarding artist access, please click here.
