If you are building on the University of California Berkeley campus and you find large concrete blocks, don’t break into them, they hold NUCLEAR WASTE! City of Oakland wants to develop the docks that regularly held 500 to 1000 barrels of nuclear waste for disposal at sea. This is the last place you would want to bring your kids!!
Note Lawrence Livermore and Lawrence Lab at the University of California are two separate entities, this report starts with Livermore’s nuclear waste for the first two pages and then the UC Berkeley Nuclear waste is posted.
A separate campus, UC Berkeley Richmond Campus is built next to a former Uranium Processing plant that the state claims they cleaned it up for chemical contamination but nowhere do they mention the uranium processing plant which was cutting uranium metal for the Department of Defense.
Also UC Berkeley has a history of injecting people with Plutonium to see what happens to them. One wonders if all people who visit the campus are unwittingly being used for experimentation, without consent which is a violation of the Nuremberg Code. It would not the first time UC Berkeley did this, University of Califonia Professor James Hamilton injected people with Plutonium just to see what would happen to them .
If the State and the Feds cannot look out for its own people how can we rely on them to protect the public?
The Califormia Department of Public Health (CDPH) regulates all of the radiological contamination in the State of California. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Building, EPA Region 9 lab and the University of California Berkeley Richmond Campus are located right in the heart of Nuclear Alley in Richmond CA. This series will highlight 6 nuclear industry companies in the Port of Richmond that held Atomic Energy Commission Licenses for Nuclear Waste, worked directly with radioactive isotopes (radioactive elements like Uranium, Plutonium, Strontium 90, Cesium 137, Cobalt 60, Carbon 14 etc) and built machines used in the Nuclear Weapons industry.
All are within walking distance of these government facilites and they have never been cleaned up for their nuclear purposes. These government facilities need to be evacuated, because they were constructed after the contamination, which means:
Every surface exposed during contruction inside the walls and out will have to be swabbed to determine alpha and beta particles for identification of the isotopes as well as gamma readings for radiation.
All samples taken as evidence for all of Region 9 which includes, CA, OR, WA, HI, NV, the Pacific and the 148 Tribal Nations in all cases where the EPA and CDPH buildings have existed will have to be thrown out and resampled.
And most importantly every employee and every living being who stepped in these facilties will have to be evacuated and monitored for exposure for the rest of their lives.
Also note the Navy dumped nuclear waste directly into San Francisco Bay in 1946 and they covered it up by making sure to not notify the barge operators what they were dumping. Here is that COVER UP Document and a separate set of orders for all Navy Bases on the West Coast, the Pacific and Norfolk Naval Bases.
Safety Regulations have changed over the years and all sites cleaned up in the past, those standards are nuclear accidents today. All sites need to be re-evaluated for radiological contamination.
EPA Regulations on proximity means the UCSF and UC Berkeley Ergonomics Lab is within 200 feet of the Stauffer Chemical Plant making it part of the site.
The EPA has regulations on Proximity to toxic waste sites. I went into the law in detail in this article on the contamination range of Treasure Island to San Francisco.
To the EPA everything within 200 feet of a site is on the site. In this case of UC Berkeley everything to the east of Egret Way, which is where the UC BErkeley Bus drives down to unload students is within the 200 feet fo the Stauffer Chemical Company.
Near Neighbors are everything from 200 feet to a quarter of a mile and that makes the EPA Region 9 Laboratory within that range.
A Second Near Neighbor class is everything from a quarter of a mile to a mile away and that encompases the California Department of Public Health.
Then you have ranges for water and dust contamination that can go 4 miles, so these sites are all within a mile of the California Department of Public Health and all sites are within the wind range contamination of each other and the city of Richmond.
Tracerlab processed biological samples from the nuclear tests in Nevada and the Pacific. They were flown in Alameda Naval Air Station and trucked into Tracerlab in Richmond. Tracerlab was the principle contractor to create the Radiological Mobile Laboratory used at the Atomic Tests. They built devices used in radiation work including devices used in nuclear power plants as well as selling radio-isotopes where they bombarded elements to change their atomic number. All this was right down the street from the CDPH building and within range of the EPA Region 9 lab and UC Berkeley Richmond Campus. It is the Eberline building.
In this map, Berkeley Scientific is the building on the left at 2200 Wright Avenue and Tracerlab is the building immediately to its right, next to the CVS and the complex on the right is the California Department of Public Health.
This article will highlight The Ocean Transport Company 4th Street and Wright Avenue that was one of many companies in the Bay Area that dumped Nuclear Waste at Sea, the others include the US Naval Radiological Defense Lab at Hunters Point Shipyard and Chevron also in Richmond. Note Chemical Weapons were also dumped at Sea off the Coast of San Francisco by the Navy (see chart below).
And the Navy dumped nuclear waste directly into the Bay in 1946, making sure to not notify the barge operators the nature of the contamination for the COVER UP DOCUMENT Here is another of the NAVY orders to dump nuclear waste in every harbor on the West Coast, the Pacific and at Norfolk.
1998 Letter from the General Accounting Office to Senator Barbara Boxer and Representative George Miller
Fort Mason in San Francisco was in command of the DOD Ocean Transport Service that had direct command of all Ocean Dumping of Nuclear waste in the Pacific.
Its a nuclear waste site. i could find more but this pretty much covers it. There are some contamination in the city itself from low level radiation disposal but the high level stuff would be in a more secure location on the mountain. Byproduct material is material made in a nuclear reactor, isotopes of radiation. Radium comes under low level, which is rediculous but thats how the law was written.
The Navy is also censoring all mention of the crisis as Dec 7th comes along the 80th Anniversary of the Bombing of Pearl Harbor but what are the survivors going to drink as the tap water is now toxic. The NAVY screwed up, again and instead of addressing the leaking oil tanks and pipeline they let it fester and now 1/8 of Honolulu’s water supply is contaminated with oil. The Navy is distributing bottled water and it couldn’t have come at a worse time for their PR and the people are appalled at the results.
“Dummy Polaris missile is blasted skyward, then quickly arrested by cables as part of “Operation Skycatch” at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard. In earlier tests, the dummy missiles were hurled into San Francisco Bay, then retrieved. Under the new method, a huge overhead assembly catches the multi-ton dummy in mid-air, simplifying the retrieving procedure and also permitting accurate study of the effects of launch stresses on dummy missiles which are structurally identical to an actual Polaris. The tests are being conducted by engineers from Westinghouse and the Lockheed Missiles and Space Division in conjunction with the U. S. Navy. Westinghouse is prime contractor for launching equipment, and Lockheed is Polaris missile system prime contractor and manager.”
Before all of the cleanups, and while the US Navy’s Radiological Defense Lab was conducting its radiation experiments all over Hunters Point Shipyard, the Navy was firing off Polaris Missiles spreading the radiation all over the Bay View Hunters Point neighborhood thus causing the highest levels of breast cancer in the world for child bearing age African American Women.
This is what happens when the Navy keeps things to themselves and refuses to acknowledge the truth, they did this to the people of San Francisco and they should be made to pay for what they have done to the unsuspecting victims of their polution.
The Washington Post Building is a toxic nightmare, mostly petroleum from leaking Underground tanks, they sold the site to Fannie Mae. Most of Washington appears to be a sea of oil and gasoline contamination. Amazing with all of the smoking it did not go up in flames.
Most printing plants are toxic waste sites. It would be interesting to see which papers are affected. Certainly all the major newspapers that have been in business since the 20th century would be affected. Ny Times? Boston Globe?
The San Francisco Chronicle is compromised as is all Hearst Publications due to the chemical contamination of their former printing plant in San Francisco.
US Navy Dispensary on Fell Street San Francisco – Home of the Bureau of Medicine for Operation Crossroads the Atomic Bomb tests at the Bikini Islands in 1946 (See 1946 listing under Chronology), the personnel who figured out how to clean ships contaminated by an Atomic Bomb Blast and it continued radiological work through 1960. Note this location is within 1200 feet of San Francisco City Hall which will need a radiological survey including an alpha particle survey by the EPA. Twitter Headquarters is also located several hundred feet from this location and since it was an old building, it too must be checked out for contamination.
