Bayview Hunters Point (BVHP) is a low-income community of color located on San Francisco Bay in southeast San Francisco. The residents and environment of BVHP are disproportionately impacted by many stationary and mobile pollution sources, including radioactive and toxic contamination at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard Superfund site and dozens of other contaminated sites along the waterfront and throughout the community. Greenaction is working with the Bay Area Association of Governments’ DACTIP (Disadvantaged Community and Tribal Involvement Program) on water quality improvement projects around the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood in San Francisco.
Students worked to support these projects by completing the following deliverables of:
(1) Research on water quality monitoring and contaminants in bay area fish
(2) Subsistence fishing signage: creating multilingual signage to support subsistence fishers in understanding potential toxins (3) Billboard about illegal dumping: researching costs, permits, and plausibility.
