This revision to the regulator-approved Soil and Groundwater Management Plan (SGMP) was prepared by Terraphase Engineering Inc. (Terraphase) to include additional parcels transferred from the U.S. Department of the Navy (Navy) at the Former Naval Station Treasure Island (NSTI; Figure 1). The initial version of the SGMP (Terraphase 2016) was approved by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) on August 22, 2016 (DTSC 2016) and August 24, 2016, respectively (RWQCB 2016b) and has been utilized to manage soil-disturbing and groundwater-producing activities that occurred in the intervening transferred parcels. Upon approval by DTSC and RWQCB, this revision will replace the previous version for use during soil-disturbing and/or ground waterproducing activities.
