As city officials and developers work to build an entirely new neighborhood at the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco, there is a chance that the EPA Superfund site is still contaminated with radioactive pollution despite reviews by federal, state and local regulators, Curbed reports. A U.S. Navy review found that Tetra Tech, the contractor it hired to clean up the site for before its redevelopment, may have faked nearly half of the $250-million-dollar work. Plans call for 12,000 housing units and millions of square feet of office and retail space to be built in the area. Developer FivePoint has already built about 300 units, which are not in the affected areas. Officials said the work being done on the land does not pose a risk to public health. [Curbed]
