Next Wednesday night, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and the Presidio Trust will host a public informational meeting about the planned cleanup of the lake in Mountain Lake Park.
Over the last several years, we have investigated sediment and water in Mountain Lake for potential contamination. Cleanup of the lake is necessary because sediment at the bottom of the lake contains contaminants of concern at concentrations that pose a potential risk to the environment. Removal of sediment from the lake will reduce the risk to a level that is protective of the environment.
The trust is working on a draft plan to recommend a cleanup method to remove the sediment from the lake, which will be released in early 2012. At that time, the plan will be available for review and public comment.
Wednesday night’s meeting offers residents a chance to learn more about the issues with the lake, the history of contamination, potential sediment removal methods, and the Presidio Trust’s plans for future lake enhancement work. They will also discuss potential impacts of the cleanup on Mountain Lake Park and surrounding residential areas, including park closures, truck traffic, and visual and noise impacts.
The meeting will take place from 6:30pm until 8:30pm at the Golden Gate Club in the Presidio.
