Carol Harvey’s reported YouTube Video Link Jul 2, 2019 According to the landlords, the notice that the land the buildings are built upon is an ongoing cleanup effort. But the tenants do not have that information in their leases. It is all BS. The landlords claim they have provided the information but it is not there. They never got around to telling the tenants that they are living on a nuclear site.
Envirostor State of California Link: “The EPA added this site to the National Priorities List (NPL) in 1991. This Superfund site is comprised of several former Fairchild Semiconductor Corp facilities spanning 56 acres in Mountain View. The Fairchild Semiconductor Corp – Mountain View site is one of three Superfund or NPL sites that are being cleaned up simultaneously. The other two Superfund sites are the Intel – Mountain View site and the Raytheon site. All three sites are located in the Middlefield-Ellis-Whisman (MEW) Study Area and are being addressed collectively as the MEW SIte. Site investigations at several of these facilities during 1981 and 1982 revealed extensive soil and groundwater contamination, primarily VOCs. Soil cleanup by soil vapor extraction, excavation, and aeration has been completed at all the MEW study area sites. Groundwater remediation is ongoing at the MEW Study Area.”
The Teledyne property is part of a two-property Superfund site along with the adjacent Spectra-Physics property.
The responsible parties (RPs) for the Teledyne/Spectra-Physics site completed a Monitored Natural Attenuation (MNA) study in the off-property area north of and downgradient of the site. The MNA study concluded that natural breakdown of the chlorinated volatile organic compounds of concern is occuring naturally and at the same rate as groundwater extraction. As a result, only a few of the off-property downgradient extraction wells were operating mainly to maintain hydraulic control of the plume. The RPs completed a pilot study to test the feasibility of enhanced reductive dechlorination (ERD) and concluded that ERD is feasible with bioaugmentation of the Shallow Zone.
Within the last five years, the RPs detected elevated source areas at the Teledyne property using high resolution technology and continuously logged and screened ERD injection well boreholes. Implementing a full-scale ERD treatability study, they have been and are currently remediating the property with groundwater-CVOC levels dropping from as much as over 80,000 ug/l to low multiples of MCLs. Several rounds of ERD injections successfully cleaned up most of the Shallow Zone at the Teledyne property and the adjacent Spring Street residential area to drinking water standards and the treatability study was even more successful in the underlying Upper and Lower Intermediate Zones.
An on-property IA VI evaluation at a SpectraPhysics property in 2004 indicated no IA-CVOC contamination above the Regional Water Board’s 2008 ESLs. More recently, the RPs also assertively evaluated potential IA VI in the off-property commercial North Bayshore and residential Spring Street areas to conclude that IA VI is not occurring in most of the commercial area and is occasionally occurring in several homes in the residential area. The RPs installed sub-slab depressurization systems in the impacted on-property commercial buildings and offered the affected residents crawl space fans to address the issue.
Nine indicator chemicals were identified from approximately 30 chemicals detected in the Study Area. The nine indicator chemicals are as follows: 1,1-dichloroethane (1,1-DCA) 1.1-dichloroethylene (1,1-DCE) 1.2-dichloroethylene (1,2-DCE) tetrachloroethylene (PCE) toluene 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene (1,2,4-TCB) 1,1,1-trichloroethane (1,1,1-TCA) trichloroethylene (TCE) vinyl chloride (VC

Article explains how a farmer living across the street from Google, where they built stations to remove contaminated groundwater out of the ground and clean it by building silos that mixed the polluted water to air so the vapor could be removed from the water and spread into the neighborhoods.
NBC Bay Area Video on the Toxic waste sites all over Silicon Valley. They had an interactive map but they took it down from their website.
Original article: NBC map showing the hundreds of sites on a map so you can see if you are affected by the pollution of Silicon Valley. https://www.nbcbayarea.com/brchannel/Map-The-Chemical-Legacy-of-Silicon-Valley-258950021.html From this map you can see that Apple and Google Headquarters are located on 2 superfund sites each where the polution is TCE Trichloroethylene where there are restrictions that require no person under the age of 21 can occupy any building built on the properties.
There is Kaiser Permanente building for Children and Adult psychiatric care built right on top of the street address of three sites and two of them are under Apple which is across the street. Note the tabs to show the daycare facilities that are on the purple areas that are mapped out to show the pollution.
“An approved project to build 26 homes at 277 Fairchild Drive is being delayed by officials with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency after they discovered the site’s soil exceeded safety levels for trichloroethylene (TCE).
Representatives for the developer, Warmington Fairchild Associates LLC, say they will clean up the soil contamination over the coming months before proceeding with construction.”
” In a settlement reached with the EPA earlier this summer, Warmington officials agreed to clean up the hazardous vapors in the top layers of soil. In addition, they will inject “bioremediation” chemicals into the aquifers below, which will help break down the TCE contaminating the groundwater. “
October 31, 2018 by Carol Harvey San Francisco Bay View; National Black Newspaper Comprehensive Article Watch the Videos, the political corruption is explained. EPA director on the TIDA development board.
“Though Treasure Island bears a certified EPA Superfund site identification number, CA7170023330, EPA officials like Jared Blumenfeld, TIDA board member who rose to direct federal EPA District 9, refuse to include this Bay Area toxic landform on the EPA’s National Priorities List (NPL) of Superfund sites online, thereby concealing the truth from potential Treasure Island renters.”
There is a picture of Paul Pelosi, Nancy Pelosi’s son and Jared Blumenfeld “Paul Pelosi Jr. poses with Jared Blumenfeld, federal director for EPA San Francisco District 9, when Blumenfeld was on the Treasure Island Development Authority Board.”
Jared Blumenfeld was the EPA Administrator for the Western District of the US in the Obama Administration. Jared Blumenfeld was appointed to the California EPA agency by Governor Gavin Newsom in January 2019.
Article explains the political connections to the developers of Treasure Island. To Nancy Pelosi’s family members directly involved in taking the island from the Navy and putting it in the hands of developers that just happen to be related or worked for all of the politicians in Nancy Pelosi’s tender care. They then put homeless people into the barracks of the island which is a superfund clean-up for nuclear radiation.
“Treasure Island is not a case of a small town that has relied on a local military base for its livelihood for decades. It is a land grab by politicians for well-connected developers. Tony Hall, the former executive director of the Treasure Island Development Authority, told us the city’s effort to develop the island is a “den of corruption.” Treasure Island Community Development, the prospective developer for Treasure Island, was granted a no-bid contract by the city.”
