On 9 May Tetra Tech released information indicating that the Navy has shown interest in their proposal to pay for an independent party to retest for radiological contamination at the Hunters Point Shipyard.
Independent retesting is a critical element of the Navy's Hunters Point reevaluation workplan. We believe it to be necessary to provide a comprehensive, credible data set to reassure the community about their safety as well as determine the extent of any remediation activities needed to complete the cleanup of HPNS. Tetra Tech has made a broad public offer to pay for retesting; the Navy requires a more concrete and specific proposal to evaluate the appropriateness of their offer. The safety of the HPNS residents is the Navy's highest priority, so the retesting must be carried out to the highest standard by a third party, under supervision, and according to a plan approved by the regulatory agencies.
