Navy Hosts Bus Tours for Hunters Point Community

10 July 2023

From Michael Pound

On Saturday, June 10, the Navy hosted guided bus tours to update community members on cleanup progress and ongoing work at the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard (HPNS). These were the first bus tours held since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in early 2020.

The Navy originally planned to hold two bus tours, but added a third one because there was interest from more than 120 people. Additionally, in collaboration, the Shipyard Trust for the Arts held two history tours.

In response to community feedback, the Navy offered a new format that allowed riders to learn more about the science behind the environmental cleanup technologies used at the Shipyard. The more than 60 people who joined the tour were able to visit demonstrations where Navy staff described equipment used for monitoring environmental conditions. This monitoring ensures that the public health remains protected.

In addition, the Navy’s new environmental coordinator, Michael Pound, provided an overview of environmental cleanup work across HPNS and answered questions from participants. Click here to download the article of the June tour.

The Navy will hold additional tours later this year in conjunction with the Shipyard Trust for the Arts’ Open Studios event in October. Details and registration will be announced in late September 2023.
