Tonight: Public Meeting On Fake Soil Tests Delaying SF Shipyard Development

In the latest installment in an ongoing saga, the Chronicle reports that land transfers from the Hunters Point Shipyard to the city for development as part of the SF Shipyard project will be delayed by at least a year.

As we reported back in September, the delays come after an employee of Navy contractor Tetra Tech said he'd been told to swap potentially contaminated soil samples for clean ones and dump potentially contaminated soil into open trenches around Hunters Point. A group of consultants is now undertaking the lengthy process of reviewing all soil testing on the site, which is slated to become a massive mixed-use development that includes 12,000 units of housing.

The Navy has scheduled a public meeting today from 5:30-7:30pm at 451 Galvez Ave., so come with your questions about the soil-testing and plans to resolve the issue.
