Navy to Begin Radiation Testing on Treasure Island Homes in JuneNavy representatives face concerned residents for the first time since deciding to survey all homes on Treasure Island for radiological contamination
By Vicky Nguyen, Liz Wagner and Jeremy Carroll NBC Bay Area (CA) April 9, 2014The Navy informed Treasure Island residents in a meeting Wednesday that it plans to begin radiological testing beneath their homes in June. Last month the Navy announced its decision to survey the land under more than 600 homes for radiation contamination.
For years the Navy has denied the presence of radiological contaminants on the island and only recently acknowledged that parts of Treasure Island are "radiologically impacted."
Nearly 3,000 people live and work on the former Naval shipyard, located halfway between San Francisco and Oakland. It is home to breathtaking views of the city skylines, and also home to people like Kathryn Lundgren, who are now questioning what they have been told about the safety of their residences.
