Hunters Point Power Plant Closure and Cleanup

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the former Hunters Point Power Plant site?

The former power plant site is a 30-acre property located at 1000 Evans Avenue in the Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco.

Who is overseeing the cleanup?

The cleanup project is being overseen by the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), the City and County of San Francisco and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District with input from the community.

What is the current status of the project?

PG&E completed most of the planned soil cleanup by the end of 2011 and is on schedule to finish the rest by the end of 2012. PG&E will also begin groundwater cleanup.

How will work impact neighbors and the community?

PG&E is committed to protecting the health of the public, workers and the environment during the cleanup, and minimizing the impact of cleanup activities on the community. In addition, PG&E is working with regulators, contractors and the community to continue the successful dust control and air monitoring program that has been in place since demolition work began.

What is the future use of the site?

PG&E is planning the next phase of cleanup activities at the Hunters Point Site, as well as the future of the site beyond the cleanup. As part of this planning process, we have begun to explore ways that we can improve the property for the local community’s benefit in the short term without creating obstacles for future site use opportunities. We will be meeting with members of the community, City officials and others to discuss options for improving the streetscape, landscape and pedestrian safety associated with the site and its surrounding areas.

PG&E also hopes to start exploring short-term community-related uses that may be permissible on some of the areas that have already been cleaned up
