ALAMEDA NAVAL AIR STATION
Superfund Site Profile
The 2,634-acre Alameda Naval Air Station is a closed Navy installation located on Alameda Island, adjacent to the city of Alameda. Solid wastes generated at the site were disposed of in two on-base landfills. All liquid industrial wastewaters generated at the site prior to 1974 were discharged untreated into Seaplane Lagoon and the Oakland Inner Harbor. The Navy, with EPA oversight, has conducted investigations to support development of cleanup decisions for the 35 Installation Restoration (IR) sites.
