OUTPUTS (Activities, efforts, and/or work product during project period)

OUTCOMES (Environmental results)

(1-5 yrs)


Secure regulatory agency permits

Remove contaminated sediment roughly 3,500 cy

Remove abandoned dock and marine structures from intertidal areas

Create clean sediment cap over remediated areas

Prepare QAPP, Progress Reports, and Final Project Report

Remove the upper two feet of sediment (habitat layer) to reduce concentrations of:
  • Copper and Lead to approximately 89 mg/kg,
  • Mercury to approximately 0.58 mg/kg,
  • Nickel to approximately 132 mg/kg
  • PCBs to approximately 5.4 to 0.18 mg/kg, and reduce maximum concentration from 16 to 1 mg/kg

-TPH (oil) by approximately 983 to 144 mg/kg, and reduce maximum concentration from 4,462 to 500 mg/kg

Reduce concentration of PAHs in the sediment by approximately 10 to 4 mg/kg

Maintain two-feet of clean cover for period of 5 years, as measured by sediment surface elevation

Improve overall wetlands ecology, increase biodiversity, and support an interconnected habitat

Create 0.20 to 0.30 acres of wetlands tidal marsh

Create 2.4 acres of publicly accessible waterfront and connect site to the San Francisco Bay Trail to the north and south.

Address health, equity and social justice issues in this chronically underserved, low income and at-risk neighborhood.
