Note: On April 19th, 2000, the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Board adopted Order No. 00-025 thereby amending SB 92-49 and the San Francisco Basin Groundwater Plan. This containment zone policy was directed at the East Bay watershed, especially in Berkeley. This action reduced vital protections and cleanup requirements for our municipal groundwater resources.
The regulatory dismemberment of Berkeley’s environmental protections has allowed DOE and the Lawrence Berkeley Lab to avoid any significant site cleanup. Under these circumstances, the state regulators’ public comments, as seen in the 2005 DTSC workshop video, were willfully dishonest. - Berkeley Citizen
