Alameda is taking steps toward a bright future at Alameda Point. However, the city continues to stumble on the former Naval Air Station’s deteriorating infrastructure. The latest tripping stone centers on 75-year-old drains serving brand-new tenants.
The Alameda Point water that was contaminated with non-potable water last week has been deemed safe for drinking, cooking and bathing by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) Division of Drinking Water. The Alameda Point do-not-drink advisory was lifted Friday.
This weekend the Bank of Marin’s Alameda Running Festival takes place at Alameda Point with an expanded Health and Fitness Expo, beer garden, live music after Sunday’s half marathon and three flat and unique run courses that showcase the beauty of the Island.
On Saturday, July 15, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. skateboarders will be competing in the third annual Clay “C-Bone” Harding skate tournament. This is an all-day family-friendly event in which 100 percent of the proceeds will go towards the City View Skate Park.
