City of Dublin, U.S. Army reach 'first-of-its-kind' deal

Original post made on Jan 1, 2020

Camp Parks will save taxpayer money by using janitorial, pest control and solid waste services contracted by the city of Dublin, in what’s been called a “first-of-its kind agreement in the San Francisco Bay Area.”

I remember my grandfather telling me how he moved to Pleasanton after world war 2 he was an elementary school teacher. He got a job at the Camp Parks military base in dublin at the school they had there for the children of active duty and reserve members. They gave him a radioactive exposure badge to measure radiation levels and said when the badge fills up to give it back and they will give another. He said why is there radiation with kids around and quit. He then got a job at Pleasanton elementary. So years later I read about a farmer that was working the land around there and the animals were dying he'd load them into his truck and the legs would just detach because of tissue degeneration from radiation. You can look up camp parks radiation facility it will tell you all about how they tested it on people animals crops bunkers etc. I just feel bad for the people who bought houses where developers bought land from the base and built million dollar homes...

Hi, I grew up in Dublin, went to church and had my first communion at the Camp Parks chapel.
I'd like to see some proof of your nuke contamination claims. Never heard or saw any such thing and knew ranchers in that area as well.

It is true and most people don't know anything about it. As far as I know they have never given the area a clean bill of health either. When I was doing reserve duty in the Seabees I just cringed when we had to go there for training and that was back in the 70's. It was common knowledge to a lot in the military.

I put two links up you can also just research online it's very easy you can type in the search bar dublin camp parks radiation testing. You probably never heard about site 300 in Livermore or how the lawrence livermore lab would give contaminated dirt away to unknowing people to use for their gardens or landscaping the city of livermore even used it in several parks which they found decades later with extremely high levels of mercury contamination.

Let's not forget the contaminated ground water plume that is continually spreading outwardsfrom LLNL.

Exactly my old neighbor that retired from the lab said years ago the llnl buried tons of toxic waste and it started to seep up so they built ponds to push the waste back into the ground
