$82 Million for Shipyard Cleanup

From the San Francisco Sentinel, December 19, 2007

Mayor Gavin Newsom announced today that the federal government has agreed to spend over $82 million on the cleanup of the Hunters Point Shipyard in the upcoming fiscal year.

The federal funds will be used to prepare over 100 acres of land at the Shipyard for transfer to the City at no cost, including land slated for new housing, parks and approximately 25 acres for a potential site for a new stadium for the San Francisco 49ers.

Post by request of Dr. Sumchai:

The Hazardous Materials remediation Plan for the Shipyard/Candlestick revitalization project documents that the Navy has spent over$500,000,000 on the shipyard cleanup to date and will have to spend that much, "or more" to complete it.
