At a press conference at San Francisco Treasure Island on March 14, 2019, Tetra Tech health and safety experts and Health Physicist Treasure Island Safety Officer talked about the systemic violation of health and safety standards and protection for the workers, residents and the public.
They reported that Tetra Tech management was involved in criminal violations of testing including massive falsfication and that this was covered up by the US and California government. They also said that they had contacted Cal-OSHA but they had not responded to blatant violations of health and safety conditions and illegal retaliations against whistleblowers.
Speakers included Tetra Tech workers  Bert Bowers, Archie Jackson and Guy Taibi who is a health physicist and Treasure Island Safety Officer. Taibi also worked for the State Of California and reported that there was fllagrant violation of carrrying out their responsiblity to protect the people of California and that this was the policy of top state officials. He reported that the Federal government provides millions of dollars to the state of California to carry out oversight and investigations but these officials refuse to use these funds to carry out this work. He also reported that there is significant nuclear material still on Treasure Island owned by the Navy that means that there was an improper transfer of the property to San Francisco for development.
