Ghostbusting in San Francisco Bay

Waterkeeper Alliance Magazine

The “Ghost Fleet of Suisun Bay”– the decaying military ships that poisoned the San Francisco Bay ecosystem for 40 years – is finally gone, as a result of legal action brought against the federal government in 2007 by San Francisco Baykeeper, Arc Ecology, and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). Removal of the 57 mothballed ships and cleanup of the bay began in 2010 and was completed in late 2017.
