Time Critical Removal Action for the Hamilton North Antenna Field, Hamilton Army Airfiled, Novato, California
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The site is currently zoned as Open Space and is designated as such in the General Plan. The site is currently unused and vacant with native and non-native vegetation is present. Unauthorized recreational land users have been observed on-site. The site is planned to be converted to wetlands as part of the Hamilton Wetland Restoration Project.
The Hamilton North Antenna Filed (NAF) is a 270-acre parcel located north of the former Hamilton Army Airfield in Novato, California. The site is owned by the California State Lands Commission and was previously owned and operated by the Army as a rifle range and an antenna field with associated support buildings. The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS) program is responsible for site remediation of the Hamilton NAF. The Hamilton NAF is planned to eventually be incorporated into the current congressionally authorized Hamilton Wetlands Restoration Project (HWRP). Based on historic sampling results, of the anticipated 90,000 cubic yards of amterial planned for excavation, at least 25,000 cubic uards will require disposal at an off-site appropriately permitted landfill, and the remaining 65,000 cubic yards may be suitable as a reusable material.
Throughout the proposed project, dust control activities will be implemented in accordance with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BBAQMD) CEQA Guidelines.
