University of California
University of California was an AWE site from 1942-1980 and DOE site from 1981-1983 but has been removed from the program.
Gilman Hall, located on the University of California-Berkeley campus, was the site of nuclear research involving plutonium and uranium. These activities were conducted on behalf of the Manhattan Engineer District and the Atomic Energy Commission.
From December 1981 through February 1983, under agreement between DOE and the University, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory personnel performed remedial action decontamination and shielding of the contaminated areas. Remedial action was certified complete in 1985.
During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
University of California was deleted as an EEOICPA site
between September 2011 and January 2012. As of
September 15, 2011 37 sick workers had filed claims with 13
of these being paid. It may be that this site was
divided into other California facilities.

DOE considered University of California Gilman Hall for FUSRAP.
June 23, 2009 Federal Register states, "OWCP has
determined that the previous DOE facility known as Gilman
Hall, University of California in Berkeley, California, will
no longer be considered a DOE facility because the
University of California is the managing and operating
contractor for the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
rather than a work site. "
