Mare Island Naval Shipyard has been identified for closure pursuant to the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990 P.L. 101-510. Current schedules call for mission cessation at Mare Island in April, 1995 and operational closure a year later, in April, 1996. The Mare Island Naval Shipyard has been in operation since 1852. Initially the base was used to dock the Navys Pacific Squadron. During World War II, Mare Island grew into one of the worlds largest ship construction and repair facilities, employing up to 41,053 persons at its peak. In the 1 950s, the Navy Department designated the Shipyard as a building and overhaul yard for submarines. It remained in this capacity until it was designated for closure in 1993.
