S.F. Officials Seek State Probe of Treasure Island Cleanup
The San Francisco Treasure Island Development Authority plans to ask the California Department of Public Health to conduct an investigation into the cleanup of radioactive waste following complaints that U.S. Navy-affiliated contractors mishandled contaminated material at the site. Exposure to the radioactive material can increase an individual's risk for serious diseases, such as leukemia and bone cancer.
