Navy plans to clean up contaminated marshlands at Mountain View's 
Moffett Field

The Navy plans to clean up some of the contaminated marshlands at 
Moffett Field as well as remove the toxic siding at Hangar One, 
signaling a victory for environmental groups.

The Navy's proposed plan to decontaminate and restore the marshlands is 
currently in a public comment period, and about 20 citizens attended a 
public meeting Thursday to ask questions.

The plan concerns Site 25, a 230-acre area in the northwest corner of 
Moffett Field that's home to marshland and a storm water retention pond. 
The pond is a blocked-off section of the Bay designed to hold storm 
water runoff from Moffett Field. Sediment and water samples from there 
have lead, zinc and the pesticide DDT, as well as the PCB contaminant 
that's caused controversy for Hangar One.
