The Sapp Battery Salvage site includes the area where Sapp Battery Company operated a battery recycling facility from the early 1970s to 1980. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program�s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater, surface water, soil and sediment resulting from facility operations.
EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the Sapp Battery Group, the site�s potentially responsible parties (PRPs), have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. By monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site�s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
