Protect Treasure Island Residents & San Francisco Bay
from Toxic and Radioactive Contamination!
When? Monday, February 8, 2021
What time? 1pm
What is it about? Speak out at San Francisco Board of Supervisors Land Use Committee hearing regarding toxic and radioactive contamination at Treasure Island
PUBLIC COMMENT CALL-IN 1 (415) 655-0001 / Meeting ID: 187 361 8447
WATCH SF Cable Channel 26, 78 or 99 (depending on provider) OR www.sfgovtv.org
Treasure Island was used by the Navy for weapons practice, ship and aircraft storage, and refueling, illegal dumping, open burning of “debris,” and repairing ships with deck markers painted with radium.
The training center for radiological decontamination, where the mock ship USS Pandemonium
containing cesium-137, a radioactive isotope, helped prepare for radiological warfare. The Navy dumped radioactive materials and other contaminants in large pits and in many locations on the Island.
Today, many low-income people of color live in subsidized housing on top of or right next to
radioactive and toxic contamination.
Rising sea levels caused by climate change will eventually inundate the radioactive and toxic waste and further contaminate Treasure Island and San Francisco Bay. Unfortunately, City Hall seems more interested in promoting mega-development than protecting residents and our San Francisco Bay.
Join us to call on the Board of Supervisors, the State and US Government to:
• Protect residents by relocating them away from contamination, providing full
compensation, long-term safe housing, and rental support
• Protect residents and San Francisco Bay by conducting comprehensive retesting and cleanup of all contamination
• Guarantee that residents will not be evicted in retaliation for speaking out
