Treasure Island was an EPA site for RCRA (Resource Conservation and Recovery Act) (RCRA) Laws and Regulations for Hazardous Waste and this report from 1991 states it was listed on 2/12/1988. I have the full text of the report below with a table indicating that Treasure Island was a separate and distinct EPA site from “Treasure Island, Hunters Point Annex” and the Shipyard was still yet another EPA site. Then you add in Yerba Buena Island, the coast guard station was also added to that list of distinct sites.

Enclosed in this text of the “Fact Sheet Federal Agency Hazardous Waste Compliance Docket” 1991 from the EPA. This EPA report includes a cover sheet, the EPA Fact Sheet, the Federal Register report and an EPA spreadsheet showing over 1600 government owned sites that were placed on this list. To see the full spreadsheet you will need to download the report. I will include Bay Area and other related sites in a table at the end of this document.

The listing required certain reports to be made within 18 months for the EPA once a site is placed on this list and this is a link to that report which does not mention the fact that this site was the Navy’s (ABC) Atomic, Biological and Chemical Training Center which was still in operation on the site when they made the report and continued up to the closing of the base! Here is the report:

The follow, up report the 1990 report DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT CANDIDATE BASE CLOSURES / REALIGNMENT SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, Department of the Navy Western Division Naval Facilities Engineering on Table D-1.11-indicates that no samples were taken of Site 2 in the 1988 report (above) so they just took the word of the Navy that nothing bad happened there! The case was closed by the 1988 report!

The Navy lied and covered up their contamination of the island in 1988. All of the activity since then is all based on their cover up. Port Huemene (which also has ABC warfare contaminated sites which I list below) which compiled this report is directly implicated in radiological tests on locations throughout the Bay Area and at Test Sites with the US Navy’s Radiological Defense Laboratory and so the Navy chose the Foxes to guard the Hen House!

The US Navy’s training publication, “Naval Training Bulletin” regularly published articles and schedules of Atomic Biological and Chemical Training at Treasure Island and I have compiled a Chronological listing of the contamination starting in 1946 and it is at my Chronology Page which can be accessed at the top of this blog or here.

I wonder if these circle marks in the lawns of Treasure Island are caused by the chemical weapons training at Treasure Island in the above Photograph from the Navy Training Bulletin?

Note the Biological warfare test in 1950 which they filmed to turn the test into a training film where they purposely contaminated the 116 square Miles of the city of San Francisco, the Bay and on into Oakland. In the film you see the minesweeper based at Treasure Island spraying the bacteria outside of the Golden Gate to be carried by the winds, where it hospitalized 12 people and killed one. The Bacterium was thought to be harmless when exposed to 18 year old recruits but it turned out to be a disease that causes cancer. The Navy has been continuously damaging the immune systems of the people of San Francisco since 1946.

In 1964, the USNRDL, the US Navy Radiological Defense Laboratory based at Hunters point Shipyard conducted a chemical warfare test at Treasure Island to see how effective a new cleaning agent DS2, Decontamination Solution 2 was in cleaning up Mustard Gas as compared to DANC. Treasure Island had mustard gas on hand to test. This photograph shows a mechanized gun being cleaned of Mustard Gas with the first USS Pandemonium training mock up ship in the background.

And here is a direct link to that report: https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/612665.pdf
DS2 solution was banned by the Navy in 1986 because it is almost as bad as the chemical warfare agents, it kills life on contact. This means that all Navy Bases and all ships used this substance since the training on Treasure Island was to train people to conduct this training on their bases and ships.

Note that Lewisite is a chemical weapon made of arsenic and acetylene which is an oil substance and the arsenic bubble detailed in the February 8 2021 San Francisco Board of Supervisors Meeting is located just downstream from the Original USS Pandemonium that was located where public housing is today. Lewisite is used with Mustard Gas as a combined chemical weapon and we know Mustard Gas was used at this location, where buildings 1311 and 1313 were located. There are two culverts that were used to collect the run off next to the sea barrier.

FEDERAL AGENCY HAZARDOUS WASTE COMPLIANCE DOCKET
PURPOSE OF THE DOCKET

The Federal Agency Hazardous Waste Compliance docket (docket) is a key component In Identifying and resolving environmental problems at Federal facilities that engage in hazardous waste activity or have the potential to release hazardous substances into the environment The purpose of the docket is threefold

• To Identify the universe of Federal facilities that must be evaluated to determine If they pose risk to public health and the environment
• To compile and maintain the Information submitted to EPA on these facilities under the provisions listed In Section 120(c) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response. Compensation. and liability Act (CERCLAI
• To provide a mechanism to make this ,information available to the public (the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides a summary of this Information to the public on a semi-annual basis In the Federal Register)

BACKGROUND

Section 120(c) of CERCLA. as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA). requires the EPA to establish a docket that contains Information regarding Federal facilities which manage hazardous waste or have potential hazardous waste problems The docket contains Information on Federal facilities that is submitted by Federal agencies to the EPA under Sections 3005. 3010. and 3016 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRAI and under Section 103 of CERCLA The information submitted to EPA on each Federal facility. as required by the above provisions, is contained In docket repositories located In the EPA Regional office where the facility is found A complete national Index of the Information found In the Regional docket repositories is maintained at EPA Headquarters In Washington, DC and is available to the public upon request

HOW A FACILITY IS LISTED ON THE DOCKET

Each Federal agency that owns or operates a facility notifies EPA of hazardous waste activity under

• RCRA Section 3005 (permitting authority)
• RCRA Section 3010 (notification of hazardous waste activity for generators, transporters. and treatment. storage. And disposal (TSD) facilities)
• RCRA Section 3016 (biennial Inventory of hazardous waste TSD facilities)
• CERCLA Section 103 (notification of a release or potential release)

The notification of hazardous waste activity must be provided to EPA by the Federal agency responsible for the facility In addition. If an agency submits a Preliminary Assessment/Site Inspection (PA/SII or equivalent report under its own environmental restoration program. EPA will consider those reports the equivalent of a CERCLA Section 103(c) notification for docket purposes

IMPACT OF DOCKET LISTING ON FEDERAL AGENCIES

CERCLA Section 120(d) requires that a Preliminary Assessment (PA) be conducted for each facility that appears on the docket The Federal agency responsible for the facility has 18 months from docket publication to evaluate the facility’s threat to public health and the environment (by conducting a PA if within those 18 months ownership changes. The new Federal owner has 18 months from the subsequent docket publication to complete the PA. The initial assessment helps to determine

• If a hazardous substance has been released (or of a significant threat of a release is present) and
• If the facility should be evaluated further for inclusion on the National Priorities list (NPL).

If the PA indicates that additional evaluation of the facility is necessary. The Federal agency must conduct a Site Inspection (SI) and may ultimately have to provide EPA all the Information for EPA to perform a full evaluation of the facility EPA Will then review the data to determine if the facilities should be listed on the NPL

DEFINITION OF A FEDERAL FACILITY FOR DOCKET PURPOSES

For the purpose of docket listing. EPA defines a Federal facility’ based primarily on the RCRA definition of “facility” This property-based definition encompasses all contiguous land that is owned by a department, agency. Or instrumentally of the United States EPA believes that the PA should be completed for the entire Federal facility as defined not just for the portions or units that may have been reported as having hazardous waste activity The PA should also address contamination which may be emanating from the facility onto adjacent property

FEDERAL FACILITIES THAT ARE EXEMPT FROM INCLUSION ON THE DOCKET

At this time, certain facilities are exempt from the docket Because EPA wants to focus on facilities likely to pose the greatest threat to public health and the environment, certain facilities deemed to pose a lesser threat are currently excluded such facilities include

• Small quantity generators (SQGs) that have never produced more than 1.000 kg/month of hazardous waste and have never reported other hazardous waste activity or releases
• Facilities formerly owned by a Federal agency
• Facilities privately owned
• Facilities that are solely transporters (as reported under RCRA Section 3010)

REMOVAL OF A FACILITY FROM THE DOCKET

A facility may be taken off the docket for several reasons The four most frequent reasons for removal from the docket are

• Determination of SQG status
• Private including state) ownership
• Redundant listing
• Failure to meet facility definition

Facilities are not removed after a PA has been performed or If It IS determined that no further remedial action is planned. The facility remains on the docket because (1) the status of the facility could change, and (2) EPA reserves the right to re-inspect any facility If additional information becomes available. In addition, a facility that has been removed from the docket can be relisted at any time If its status changes. for example. If a spill occurs at the facility Determinations as to its status are made by the Region responsible for the facility. With EPA Headquarters Input as necessary.

DOCKET HOTLINE (1-800-548-1016)

The docket Hotline is available to assist the general public and Federal agencies with questions related to the docket General questions about Federal facilities. Policy decisions, regulations, or legislation unrelated to the docket are typically referred to the RCRA/Superfund Hotline (1-800-424-9346) or EPA Headquarters.

Federal Agency Hazardous Waste Compliance Docket

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of fifth update of the Federal Agency Hazardous Waste Compliance Docket pursuant to CERCLA section 120(c).

SUMMARY: Section 120(c) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1980 (SARA), requires the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish a Federal Agency Hazardous Waste Compliance Docket that contains certain information regarding Federal facilities that manage hazardous waste or from which hazardous substances may be or have been released. (As defined by CERCLA 101(22), a release is any spilling, leaking, pumping, pouring, emitting, emptying, discharging, injecting, escaping, leaching, dumping, or disposing into the environment.) CERCLA requires that the docket be updated every 6 months as new facilities are reported to EPA by Federal agencies. The following list identifies the Federal facilities to be included in the fifth update of the docket (i.e., facilities not previously listed on the docket and reported to EPA since the last update to the docket, 56 FR 49328, September 27, 1991, which was current as of April 1, 1991). EPA policy specifies that for each Federal facility that is included on the docket during an update, the responsible Federal agency must complete a preliminary assessment (PA) and, if warranted, a site inspection (SI), within 18 months of publication of this notice. Such remedial site evaluation activities will help determine whether the facility should be included on the National Priorities List (NPL) and will provide EPA and the public with valuable information about the facility. In addition to the docket update list, this notice includes a section comprising revisions (i.e., corrections and deletions) to the previous docket list and subsequent updates. At the time of publication of this notice, the new total number of Federal facilities listed on the docket is 1652,

DATES: This list is current as of August 23, 1991.

I. Introduction.

The Federal Agency Hazardous Waste Compliance Docket (“docket”) was required to be established under section 120(c) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9620(c), as amended by SARA. The docket contains information on Federal facilities that is submitted by Federal agencies to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA” or “the Agency”) under sections 3005, 3010, and 3016 of RCRA, 42 U.S.C. 6925, 6930, and 6937, and under Section 103 of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9603. Specifically, RCRA section 3005 establishes a permitting system for certain hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal (TSD) facilities; RCRA section 3010 requires waste generators, transporters, and TSD facilities to notify EPA of their hazardous waste activities; and RCRA section 3016 requires Federal agencies to submit biennially to EPA an inventory of hazardous waste sites that the Federal agencies own or operate. CERCLA section 103(a) requires notification to the National Response Center (NRC) of a release; CERCLA section 103(c) requires reporting the existence of certain facilities and of known or suspected releases of hazardous substances at such facilities.

The docket serves, among others, three major purposes: (1) To identify the universe of Federal facilities that must be evaluated to determine whether they pose a risk to human health and the environment sufficient to warrant Inclusion on the NPL; (2) to compile and maintain the information submitted to EPA on these facilities under the provisions listed in section 120(c) of CERCLA; and (3) to provide a mechanism to make this information available to the public.

The initial list of Federal facilities to be included in the docket was published on February 12, 1988 (53 FR 4280). The first update was published on November 16, 1988 (53 FR 46364). The second update was published on December 15, 1989 (54 FR 51472). The third update was published on August 22, 1990 (55-FR 34492). The fourth update was published on September 27, 1991′(56 FR 49328). The fifth update of the docket is being published today.

Today’s notice is divided into three major sections: (1) Corrections, (2) deletions, and (3) additions. The docket corrections section lists changes to information on facilities already listed on the docket. The deletions section lists facilities that EPA is deleting from the docket. The additions section lists newly identified facilities that have been reported to EPA since the last update and are now being included on the docket.

The information submitted to EPA on each Federal facility is contained in the docket repository located in the EPA Regional Office of the region where the facility is found. (See 53 FR 4280 (1988) for a description of the information required under these provisions.) Each repository contains the documents submitted to EPA under the reporting provisions (and correspondence relevant to the reporting provisions) for each facility. A complete national index of the information found in the Regional docket repositories is maintained at EPA Headquarters in Washington, DC, and made available to the public. The index for each Region is available for public review at each Regional repository. Contact the Federal Facilities Docket Hotline (800-548-1016) for information on repository locations and arrangements for reviewing and copying specific documents.

II. Revisions to the Previous Docket

1. Corrections

Necessary changes to correct the previous docket were identified by both EPA and Federal agencies. These changes vary from simple address and spelling changes to facility name and ownership corrections. Many are simply typographical or typesetting errors. For each facility with a correction, the original entry as it appeared in the February 12, 1988, notice: the November 16, 1988, update; the December 15, 1989, update; the August 22, 1990 update; or the September 27, 1991, update is shown directly above the corrected entry for easy comparison.

2. Deletions

Today, 94 facilities are being deleted from the docket for various reasons, such as incorrect reporting of hazardous waste activity, change in Federal ownership, and exemption as a small quantity generator (SQG) under RCRA (40 CFR 262.44). Facilities being deleted will no longer be subject to the requirements of CERCLA section 120(d

3. Additions

Today, 144 facilities are being added to the docket primarily because of new information obtained by EPA (e.g.. recent reporting of a facility pursuant to RCRA sections 3005, 3010. or 3016 or CERCLA section 103). In some cases, facilities were inadvertently omitted from the initial list or prior updates. For all facilities being added in this section. it is EPA’s policy that the responsible agency must complete the required PA, and. if warranted, an SI, within 18 months from the date of this publication. Of the 144 facilities being added to the docket, 4 are facilities which have reported the release of a reportable quantity (RQ) of a hazardous substance to the Emergency Response Notification System (ERNS). ERNS is a national computer database and retrieval system which stores information on releases of oil and hazardous substances. Under section 103(a) of CERCLA, a facility is required to report to the NRC the release of a hazardous substance in a quantity which equals or exceeds the established RQ. Release reports received by the NRC, the U.S. Coast Guard, and EPA are electronically transmitted to the Transportation Systems Center at the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) where they become part of the ERNS database. Facilities being added to the docket and facilities already listed on the docket which have an ERNS report have the notation of “103(a)” in the “Reporting Mechanism” column.

It is EPA’s policy generally not to list on the docket facilities which are SQGs and have never produced more than 1.000 kg of hazardous waste in any month. However, if a facility has ever generated more than 1,000 kg of hazardous waste in any month, (i.e., is an episodic generator), it will be added to the docket. In addition, the Agency believes that facilities which are SQGs but have reported releases under section 103, or hazardous waste activities pursuant to another reporting mechanism, should be listed on the docket. EPA believes that such facilities should undergo remedial site evaluation activities, such as a PA and, where appropriate, an SI. All such facilities will be listed on the docket regardless of whether they are SQGs pursuant to RCRA. As a result, some of the facilities that EPA is today adding to the docket are SQGs which had not been previously listed on the docket but have reported releases or hazardous waste activities to EPA under another reporting provision.

In the process of compiling the documents for the Regional repositories, EPA Identified a number of facilities which had previously submitted a PA report, an SI report, a Department of Defense Installation Restoration Program report, or another Federal agency environmental restoration program report, but had not submitted a section 103 notification form. Section 120(c)(3) of CERCLA requires that EPA include information submitted under section 103 in the docket. In general, section 103 requires certain persons to provide notice of certain releases of hazardous substances. The aforementioned Federal agency environmental restoration program reports contain information similar to information provided pursuant to CERCLA section 103 and are considered equivalent forms of notification for purposes of the docket. Thus, the Agency believes that facilities which have provided information equivalent to a CERCLA section 103 notification, such as a Federal agency environmental restoration program report, should be included on the docket regardless of the absence of formal section 103 notification. Therefore, some of the facilities that EPA is adding today are being placed on the docket because of the above-mentioned reports.

III. Process for Compiling the Updated Docket

In compiling the newly reported facilities for the update being published today, EPA extracted the names, addresses, and identification numbers of facilities from four EPA databases– ERNS, Hazardous Waste Data Management System (HWDMS, a RCRA database), Resource Conservation and Recovery Information System (RCRIS), and CERCLIS (the CERCLA database)- which contain Federal facility information submitted under the four provisions listed in section 120(c).

Extensive computer checks compared the current docket list with the information obtained from the above databases to determine which facilities were, in fact, newly reported and qualified for inclusion on the update. In spite of the quality assurance efforts EPA has undertaken, it is possible that State-owned or privately-owned facilities may have been included. These problems are the result of historical procedures used to report and track Federal facility data: the Agency is working to resolve them. Federal agencies are requested to write to EPA’s Docket Coordinator at the following address if revisions to this update.

information are necessary: Federal Facilities Docket Coordinator, Office of Federal Facilities Enforcement (OE– 2261), U.S. EPA, 401 M Street SW.. Washington, DC 20460

IV. Facilities Not Included

As explained in the original docket preamble (53 FR 4280), the docket does not include the following categories of facilities (note, however, that any of these types of facilities may, where appropriate, be listed on the NPL):

  1. Facilities formerly owned by a Federal agency and now privately owned. However, facilities that are now owned by another Federal agency will remain on the docket, with responsibility for conducting PAs and SIs resting with the current owner.
  2. Facilities operated but not currently owned by a Federal agency. For example, facilities that are operated by the Federal government under state or private ownership will not be listed on the docket.
  3. SQGs that have never produced more than 1,000 kg in any month and have not reported releases under CERCLA section 103 or other hazardous waste activities under section 3016.
  4. Facilities that are solely transporters as reported under RCRA section 3010.

V. Information Contained on Docket Listing

As discussed above, the update information below is divided into three separate sections. The first section comprises corrections to the docket. The second section is a list of facilities being deleted from the docket. The third section is a list of new facilities that are being added to the docket. Each facility listed as part of the update has been assigned a code that indicates a more specific reason(s) for the correction, deletion, or addition. The code key precedes the lists.

It is EPA’s policy that all facilities on the additions list to this fifth docket update must submit a PA, and, if warranted, an SI, to EPA within 18 months of the date of this publication. A PA must include existing information about a site and its surrounding environment, including a thorough examination of the human, food-chain, and environmental targets, the potential waste sources, and migration pathways. If it appears that the site may score high enough for inclusion on the NPL or there may be a threat to human health or the environment, a follow-up SI is required. An SI augments the data collected in a PA. An SI may reflect sampling and other field data which is used to determine if further action or investigation is appropriate. This policy includes any facility changing responsible agencies. These reports should be submitted to the Federal Facilities Coordinator in the appropriate EPA Regional Office.

The facilities listed in each section are organized by State and then grouped alphabetically within each State by the Federal agency responsible for the facility. Under each State heading is listed the facility name and address, the statutory provision(s) under which the facility was reported to EPA, the EPA region where the facility is located, and the correction codes.

The statutory provision(s) under which a facility reported are in a column entitled “Reporting Mechanisms” and each facility has its applicable mechanisms listed, separated by a comma. For example: 3010, 3016, 103(c).

The complete list of Federal facilities that now makes up the docket is not being published today. However, the list is available to interested parties and can be obtained by calling the Federal Facilities Docket Hotline (800-548-1016 or 703-883-8577). As of today, the total number of Federal facilities that appear on the docket is 1652.

VI. Facility Status Reporting

In response to numerous Federal agency requests, EPA has expanded the docket database to include information on the status of docket facilities. A prevalent concern has been the inability to identify facilities which, after submitting all necessary site assessment information, were found to warrant no further EPA involvement at this time. Accordingly, EPA has expanded the docket database to include a column indicating the facility’s status. The status codes are as follows:

U = Undetermined
N =No Further Response Action Planned (NFRAP)
P= Currently Proposed for the NPL
F=Currently Final on the NPL
R=Removed from the Proposed NPL and No Longer Considered for the Final NPL
D=Deleted from the Final NPL

NFRAP is a common term used in the Superfund site assessment program. It is used to identify facilities where EPA has found that, based on currently available information, listing on the NPL is not likely and further assessment is not appropriate at this time. NFRAP status does not represent an EPA determination that there are no environmental threats present at the facility or that no further environmental response action of any kind is necessary. As stated, NFRAP is intended to mean only that the facility does not appear to warrant NPL listing based on the information available to EPA at this time, and therefore no further involvement by EPA in site assessment cleanup at the facility is anticipated. However, additional CERCLA response action by the agency that owns or operates the facility, whether remedial or removal actions, may be necessary at a facility with a NFRAP status.

The NPL status information was taken directly from CERCLIS. CERCLIS is a database that contains information used by EPA Headquarters and Regional personnel for site, program, and project management; CERCLIS contains the official inventory of all CERCLA sites (NPL and non-NPL) and supports all site planning and tracking functions. The status information in the docket database will be updated from time to time, but will not always be current; the current status of a facility is the status reflected in CERCLIS, which may change as new information is received. Docket facilities not listed in CERCLIS will have an “undetermined” status code until status is changed based on Regional information.
