This 18 August 2005 file photo shows an aerial view of Alcatraz Island, in San Francisco Bay of California. Once a sinister home to notorious mobsters and murderers, Alcatraz is in line for an environmental makeover that could see the imposing former prison island become a tree-hugger's paradise. The US Parks Service is studying plans to make Alcatraz self-sufficient in an attempt to lessen the impact on the environment and provide an example to the rest of the US. By 2014, authorities expect to have installed a waste reprocessing plant as well as a de-salination plant to provide drinking water.
