Former Zeneca/ Campus Bay Site

Remediation and Excavation Activities
No excavation activities currently scheduled. Ongoing activities at the former Zeneca site include groundwater monitoring, marsh restoration, weed abatement on the temporary cap, investigation of the former lagoons and Southeast parcel, and pilot testing for treatment of volatile organic compounds and arsenic in soil and groundwater.

Two Feasibility Studies and Removal Action Workplans are in draft to address remediation planned in the Habitat Area 2 Former Evaporation Ponds (currently scheduled for implementation in 2018 and 2019) and in Lots 1, 2, and 3 (currently scheduled for implementation in 2019 and 2020). The public comment period for the Lot 1, Lot 2, and Upland portion of Lot 3 is open from July 9, 2018 to August 10, 2018. A Public Meeting will be held at the Richmond Field Station on July 26th. See Q1 2018 Project Schedule for estimated timeline.

DTSC Order Three Year Implementation Calendar (2016- 2019) and DTSC Approval Letter (November 16, 2016)

Field Sampling Plan Phases IV (FSP IV) 2014-15 and V (FSP V) 2016-17

The fourth phase of field sampling to investigate data gaps is complete. The four activities described in the FSP IV Work Plan (and Addendum I for the Bulb Excavation) have been completed. The final investigation report was approved by DTSC on April 22, 2016. PCBs found in the EPA Meadow North were further investigated in November 2017 under a workplan approved by DTSC and EPA.

FSP V consists of field investigations of two portions of the southern end of the RFS at Western Stege Marsh and will be a multi-year effort. Implementation of the FSP V Work Plan began in January 2017 with the collection of sediment and porewater in the Old Marsh not previously subject to remediation. A draft report on the results of the sampling was completed in July 2017. Implementation of investigation of the Bulb will be addressed in fall 2019, after the Ridgway's rail nesting season.

Biologically Active Permeable Barrier (BAPB) Investigation ongoing 2014-2015

Field Investigation by environmental consultants for Zeneca at the Biologically Active Permeable Barrier (BAPB) west of the Connector Trail in Western Stege Marsh was completed in December 2014 with the fourth or four quarters of monitoring of October 2013 installed wells. For more information see the news item Work Notice and the workplan on Technical Documents page of this website.

A summary report on the well monitoring was completed by environmental consultants working for Zeneca in April 2015 and approved by DTSC on July 9, 2015.

Berkeley Global Campus at Richmond Bay Planning

As of October 2016, the redevelopment of the Richmond Field Station per the 2014 Richmond Bay Campus LRDP has been postponed while campus addresses other more urgent needs, such as financial sustainability and housing.  However, the longterm goal is to facilitate development as generally set forth in the 2014 LRDP.

Environmental planning documents approved by the UC Regents at the May 2014 meeting can be found at the Berkeley Global Campus site at

Ongoing Groundwater Field Sampling Workplan Implementation

In 2010 groundwater wells were installed in an array throughout the RFS as described in the April 2010 Phase 1 Groundwater Field Sampling Workplan. Seven  rounds of groundwater sampling have been completed. The draft report for the eighth round presents results of measurements and sampling completed in October 2015 and April 2016. The ninth round of sampling was conducted in October 2016 and April 2017.

Removal Action Workplan and Soils Management Plan Implementation

The Removal Action Workplan to address three activities to remediate remaining soil contamination and carbon tetrachloride in groundwater in the Coastal Terrace Prairie area was approved by DTSC in July 2014. The approved Soils Management Plan for soil disturbance in the Research, Education, and Support areas of BGC is being implemented with the first Revision being completed in April 2017.

Research Projects
December 2014: LBNL Fiber Optic Distributed Sensor Survey Project was installed. The project is scheduled to continue for six months and may be extended. For more information see the December 4, 2014 Current News report.

April 2016: B163 Phytoremediation Project. The Pallud Lab (College of Natural Resources, ESPM) is conducting a phytoremediation field research study using arsenic hyper-accumulating ferns to evaluate their capability of remediating metals from pyrite cinder containing soils. The project will be conducted at B163 and is estimated to continue for two years. For information see the Phytoremediation Project SMP Forms.
