The Pickettville Road Landfill site is located in Jacksonville, Florida. It includes the area where the City of Jacksonville operated a waste disposal facility from the 1940s to 1977. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program�s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Pickettville Road Landfill Superfund Site Group, the site�s potentially responsible parties (PRPs), have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site to protect people and the environment from contamination.
Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. A water line connects residences and businesses to the public water supply. By monitoring groundwater, placing institutional controls on the site property and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site�s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
