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. See May 2017 DTSC Work Notice Campus Bay cap maintenance activities beginning May 15, 2017.

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. No significant contamination was discovered in any of these sampling activities. The final investigation report was approved by DTSC on April 22, 2016.
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.

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 March 2017.
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.
