"Another potential source of contamination was a training ship the Navy intentionally doused with low-level radiation so sailors could practice scrubbing it clean." Now there's an idea. Anyway, the state's Department of Public Health, the Department of Toxic Substance Control, the US Navy, and the Mayor's Office are arguing about just how good a job the Navy did with cleaning up Treasure Island Naval Station's nuclear contamination. Look for words like "minimal," "widespread" and "exaggerated" in discussing the risks on an island we're paying $105M for with plans to eventually house 20K people. [SFGate/Curbed SF]
