Candlestick Point Dust Monitoring

The Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII) and CP Development Co., LP (FivePoint), a subsidiary of Lennar Urban, entered into the Candlestick Point and Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 Disposition and Development Agreement in 2010 (“Phase 2 DDA”). The Phase 2 DDA has been amended three times, the full agreement and amendments are available here:

In 2014 the Candlestick Stadium, and its surrounding parking lot, was transferred from the Recreation and Parks Department to Five Point. The Candlestick Stadium was demolished in 2015.  FivePoint is now responsible for the development of a new, mixed use community on Candlestick Point. The new development will occur in phases over the next 15-20 years, and will include: 7,218  units of housing – including rebuilding the Alice Griffith Public Housing, a regional and neighborhood serving retal , a hotel, performance venue, and 160 acres of new and revitalized open space. Additional information about the future development of Candlestick Point can be found here:

Lennar Urban is currently working on two, adjacent projects on Candlestick Point: 1) infrastructure completion for Alice Griffith and 2) infrastructure and construction in the former Candlestick stadium site area.

PARTICULATE MATTER/DUST MONITORING (PM-10 monitors)

The Candlestick Stadium Dust Control Plan requires a third-party environmental consultant to use monitors with optical detection of specific-size particulate matter at several locations around the demolition site perimeter to continuously measure levels of particulate matter that are less than 10 microns in diameter. The monitoring serves as another means to ensure that contractor dust control practices are consistent over time, and to flag specific dates and times when dust control practices should be examined in order to implement improvements.

These battery operated equipment are maintained by third party consultants, swapping out batteries, downloading the captured continuous monitoring data and also making three times a day manual readings of PM-10 levels to verify that the equipment is functioning. Data graphs are color coded to show the results for each monitor, and each graph shows the reference Action Level.

Exceedances of the Action Level do not indicate an immediate health risk to the public. Rather an exceedance will flag one of two possibilities: 1) A date and time when dust control practices were not effective and should be examined in order to implement improvements or 2) A date and time when an environmental event unrelated to the job site affected all monitors at once. Such events might include the optical detection of fog mist rather than dust particles, or passing vehicle emissions from public roadways. The third-party environmental consultant shares these data download graphs with DPH weekly for their review.

Understanding Particulate Matter Monitoring


NATURALLY OCCURING ASBESTOS & ASBESTOS MONITORING

Candlestick Point does have naturally occurring asbestos in the soil. To ensure the safety of workers, nearby residents and the public, Lennar Urban must perform work in accordance with an Asbestos Dust Mitigation and Fugitive Dust Control Plan, available in the documents section below. Compliance with the asbestos components of this plan is overseen by BAAQMD.

In addition to the activities at Candlestick Stadium, development is occurring at the Alice Griffith project including new infrastructure and the development of replacement public housing. Asbestos monitors are active on the Alice Griffith site because work is being performed below grade, meaning that soil with naturally occurring asbestos is being disturbed. The Candlestick Stadium site will also have asbestos monitors once soil disturbing/below grade work begins. 

Understanding Asbestos Monitoring


WHO TO CONTACT:

Members of the public are encouraged to call the Lennar Urban 1-(866)-553-6627 whenever they are concerned about visible dust or improper contractor practices. Those calls will have immediate response through Lennar Urban’s oversight, and the caller will hear back from Lennar Urban within 24 hours.

If response to the Lennar number is not satisfactory, members of the public with visible dust concerns should call 311 or DBI. This will trigger DBI’s inspector to visit the site and use the Building Code to enforce the visible dust requirements.
