contamination on a part of the shipyard where he didn't expect to find any. he's speaking exclusively to liz wagner, hoping what he has to say will prompt the government to take swift action. >> this former worker has questioned the shipyard clean-up before, but this time he's speaking out about radiation he fount on an area of hunters point that now belongs to the city of san francisco, right next to land already being developed. >> i hope they do something about it, because if not, it's really going to bother me. >> we're overlooking hunters point with anthony smith. he's pointing to where he said he took a questionable soil sample years ago. >> right by that light pole. >> reporter: he started testing the navy's land for commission after decades of use as a radiological research lab. in 2009, he needed to collect what's called a background sample from a clean part of the shipyard. >> against that concrete wall. >> reporter: smith says he took one on this hill because he was
always told the area was clean. >> was it clean? >> no. no, it was not clean. it had cesium in it. >> reporter: cesium can increase the risk of cancer. the sample tested up to 25 times the acceptable clean-up limit. he said what happened next stunned him and other workers. >> your supervisor comes back and says this sample's hot. >> yeah. and he said, get rid of it. keep your mouth shut, all four of you and don't never say nothing about it again. >> reporter: earlier smith revealed to nbc bay area his allegations that supervisors at tetra tech, the company the navy hired to clean up the shipyard, instructed him to switch contaminated soil samples with clean ones. >> it shocked them what i told them. >> reporter: his claims caused the navy to launch an investigation, but nearly a year
after pointing out this alleged hot spot to the feds, the navy has yet to test it. >> go out there and sample it. at least give it a shot, and hopefully the only place it's found is right there, that would tickle me to death, make me feel better. >> reporter: smith says he took the sample on uc 2, land the navy has since transferred to the city of san francisco. it's right next to parcel a, where new construction is already happening. we learned the building where smith says he took the hot sample will become a commercial kitchen. >> will the navy commit to testing this area? >> that determination hasn't been made. >> reporter: derek robinson oversees the clean-up of the navy shipyard. >> right now, we don't think there's any risk to people who jog by or live on the base. >> how can you be sure, if you
haven't tested? >> we've looked at multiple line sevens to make sure there isn't current risk. >> reporter: he says the cesium is typical in bay area soil and doesn't pose a health threat. but the level he found is well above the navy's own published clean-up standard by up to 25 times. robinson said the navy only has to meet that standard if it's determined that contamination was caused by past navy activity, like the operation of its radiological lab. two feet of soil was removed from the area as part of the general clean-up plan. but we dug through navy records and found no radiological surveys have ever been performed on the spot where smith says he took the sample. >> i'm disappointed. i'm terribly disappointed in the navy. >> reporter: this attorney represents several former workers who blew the whistle on the hunter point clean-up. he organized the meeting between anthony smith and the navy last summer. now he says he's fed up with the
delay. nge >> they're coming up with a plan to figure out how to test it. that's a mistake when you're allowing people to work there today. >> do you think the navy should be moving with some sense of urgency here because this specific parcel of land is so close to where new construction is already happening? >> because we've looked at this particular area very closely, we don't believe that there's any current risk. we have time to do a thorough investigation. >> reporter: anthony smith says he hopes he can rely on the navy's team to find the full extent of contamination he believes may still exist at hunters point. >> unless you go there and sample, you'll never know. >> the navy says next month it expects its team of experts to recommend areas of the shipyard that contractors should retest. we reached out to tetra tech for comments on smith's allegations. the company says because of its agreement with the navy, it's not allowed to provide details about his work on hunters point.

sierras. after all the snow melt we're talking about the first half of the week, for san francisco, that 80s mid week, 60s for the weekend and valleys singing from the 90s on wednesday, mid 60s by sunday. so, yeah, summer, winter, and back again in seven days. >> exactly. >> thanks, rob. just ahead, changes coming to the bay bridge. people who love riding their bikes, they're about to love this even more, more access to the bridge. details coming up. >> and that's the bridge they'll be riding and walking across. not going to be open late at night. >> no. >> but it will be from early in the morning. we'll have the story right after this. ==peggy/1xvid == celebrate the summer of heroes, only at

even on an offnight, we'll score enough points if we're locked in on the defensive end. that's the most important thing. if we're locked in like that, i think we can beat anyone. i don't care who it is. when we have that type of focus level, i think, no matter who you put in front of us, it's over. just my opinion. >> the deciding game seven, jazz on the clippers' court. this game decides who will play the warriors. and hgordon hayward in the thir quarter drives around the screen, gets the runner and the one. hayward had a game-high 26 points. just dominated this one. again in the quarter, driving, missing the lay-up. derrick favors is there are if the tip-in. favors had 17 points and 11 rebounds. jazz get their first playoff series win since 2010. they win big. so the warriors play host for the first two games with tip-off at 7:30 on tuesday and thursday.

error, and that's the case with us right now. i mean, occasionally, you gotta break out and score a bunch of runs and we're not doing it. we're not driving the ball. and it's catching up with us. rubber match for the a's/astros. astros leading by one in the fourth inning. evan gattis, jesse hahn, short left field wall, he doesn't clear it, but still a run comes in, a double for gattis. but the real hero of this game was the starter for the astros, one dallas keuchel. he was amazing, back to his cy young form of 2016. struck out nine over 7 2/3 innings, one earned. he's now 5-0 on the season as the astros wins 7-2. a's have monday off and then wrap up their road trip with a three-game set with the twins. giants open a three-game series tomorrow night against the dodgers. more news after the break. work with.

her floor. >> did the police talk to any of the other workers on your floor? >> no. >> why didn't the officer question any of the 15 or so people who work on the floor with access to that bathroom? >> we have to make sure we don't make this into some sort of witch-hunt. say we had a burglary, we technically by your explanation, we would talk to every single neighbor in that neighborhood in order to just be figuring out what occurred. >> you might talk to the next-door neighbor or the across-the-street neighbor. >> it seems like the officer dropped the ball and didn't bother asking anyone questions that may have helped lead to a suspect. >> he did pursue who handled it. he did view it. when the human resources personnel told him there were over a hundred people, he had to make a decision, what is it that he can do to be productive. >> police don't do hr's job and
hr shouldn't do the police's job. >> karen is the deputy district attorney in san mateo county. last year, her office filed 11 cases with peeping toms. she said prosecutors depend on police to do a thorough investigation so they can bring charges. >> it's amazing what people know if they're asked the right questions. a lot of people may not even know they have information until they're questioned by a trained questioner. >> and you can't find a suspect if you don't ask questions. >> exactly. the message that the victim gets from that is that, i was violated and nobody cares. >> reporter: we found suspects do face justice when police catch them. santa clara, alameda, and san francisco county prosecuted 29 peeping tom cases last year. they've seen cameras in restaurant trash cans, store dressing rooms, even people recording roommates in a shared bathroom. alma electronics declined to answer our questions and they
tell us they were unable to determine who placed the camera. the company said it advised employees and continues to closely monitor all rest rooms for any suspicious activity. >> they didn't tell anyone, you know, they don't tell any, you know employees. >> reporter: meanwhile, vien says she feels little of that at her workplace these days, not knowing if the perp who placed the camera still works there, or still has videos of her. >> now i'm feeling nobody help me at all. you know, even police, even my company, no one help me. that's why i want to speak out and let everybody know to be careful. >> sergeant cortes said he will speak with officers at the fremont police department about how this case was handled and review best practices with officers. investigators say, be aware of your surroundings, and if you see a camera or a phone recording you, don't touch it,
on september 9, 2010, pg&e learned a tragic lesson we can never forget. this gas pipeline ruptured in san bruno. the explosion and fire killed eight people. pg&e was convicted of six felony charges including five violations of the u.s. pipeline safety act and obstructing an ntsb investigation. pg&e was fined, placed under an outside monitor, given five years of probation, and required to perform 10,000 hours of community service. we are deeply sorry. we failed our customers in san bruno.
while an apology alone will never be enough, actions can make pg&e safer. and that's why we've replaced hundreds of miles of gas pipeline, adopted new leak detection technology that is one-thousand times more sensitive, and built a state-of-the-art gas operations center. we can never forget what happened in san bruno. that's why we're working every day to make pg&e the safest energy company in the nation. today. beaches were also packed. a weekend with no rain in sight. just bright warm sunshine. that was the scene in sausalito today. beaches were packed. how long will it be here?

afternoon, but they're changing direction now. out of the north. and look what it's doing to the temperatures here in the north bay and east bay. and specifically napa, watch the wind speeds in the forecast hour by hour. 6:30 a.m., may see some gusts here. close to 20 to 30 miles per hour. so in these hilltop spots, you may wake up with 60-degree temperatures in the morning. but wind sheltered valleys closer to santa rosa could wake up closer to the 40s. interesting morning. breezy and warm in the hills. low-lying valleys, 40s and 50s to start the day. then by the afternoon, dry and warm everywhere. mid afternoon temperatures, mid to upper 80s. south of downtown san jose, out towards the trivalley and east bay. oakland 79 degrees. san francisco, mid to upper 70s. north bay, dry north breezes mean you'll see temperatures having to reach close to 90. around sonoma and santa rosa, if we don't get there tomorrow,
we'll get there tuesday and wednesday. hour by hour trend tomorrow, 5 to 8 degrees warmer than today. bay temperatures mid to upper 70s, mid to upper 80s inland. bay temperatures close to ache degrees on tuesday. upper 80s in the forecast for tuesday. wednesday should be the hottest day around the bay area. you can see this ridge of high pressure, if this goes as forecast, it could be one of the strongest ridges we've seen to start off the month of may. possibly a record breaker for wednesday. may see a heat advisory too. but everything changed thursday to friday. this cold area of low pressure which may set up across central california, friday and saturday. so if it takes more of an over-ocean path, it will take more moisture. or if it travels down the coast or inland, may be dryer, but both solutions will be cooler
for next weekend. stay tuned. we'll see how much we'll have in the way of showers or potentially sierra snow showers by next week. through wednesday, highs as warm as 80s and 90s inland. and next weekend, 60s and 70s again. almost 30 degrees of change in three to four days. >> wow. >> thank you very much. just ahead, feeding the hungry. a teenager took it upon himself to start this charity. the impact he's creating, that's coming up next.
