A series of inspections called Safety Audits have been done at the plant by Contra Costa Health Services' Hazardous Materials Programs, as required by the county Industrial Safety Ordinance. The results of these Safety Audits will be discussed.

The forum is hosted by Contra Costa Health Services' Hazardous Materials Programs and the Bay Point Municipal Advisory Council, with opening remarks by Contra Costa County Supervisor Federal Glover. The public is invited to attend and ask questions.


The forum is at Calvary Temple, 4725 Evora Road at the corner of Driftwood Drive in Willow Pass between Concord and Bay Point.


"Our Safety Audits have uncovered some problems at the plant that are being corrected," said Randy Sawyer, Hazardous Materials Program.
