What Are the Risks at the Site?
At each site, EPA determines the possibility for human and ecological contact (i.e., exposure) with contaminants at the site. EPA determines if the site poses a risk to humans or ecological receptors, and if so, identifies actions that can be taken to control any possible exposure until site cleanup has been completed. Once complete, cleanup provides long-term human health and environmental protection at the site. (Superfund risk assessment process).
The most recent Five Year Review was published by EPA HQs in 2015.
As part of the Remedial Investigation (RI), a Baseline Human Health Risk Assessment was prepared for the site. Site investigations found contamination in groundwater and soil that could potentially harm people in the area.
Soil contamination at the site was addressed in the 1990s. FDEP listed the site and nearby surrounding area as a groundwater delineation areaExit, which means all wells placed in the area require the District’s approval. Drinking water at and near the site is from a municipal water supply. EPA assessed whether workers at the site might be at risk from potential harmful groundwater vapors in buildings. EPA found that vapor intrusion did not pose a threat to workers.
EPA uses performance measures to track environmental results at Superfund sites. If you have any questions or concerns about the measures at this site, please contact the site team members listed under Site Contacts.

|Status at this
|What does this mean?|
|Human Exposure Under Control||Yes||Yes means assessments indicate that across the entire site:
No means an unsafe level of contamination has been detected at the site and a reasonable expectation exists that people could be exposed.Insufficient data means that, due to uncertainty regarding exposures, one cannot draw conclusions as to whether human exposures are controlled, typically because:
|Groundwater Migration Under Control||Not a Groundwater Site||
Yes means EPA reviewed all information on known and reasonably expected groundwater contamination. EPA concluded the migration of contaminated groundwater is stabilized and there is no unacceptable discharge to surface water. EPA will conduct monitoring to confirm that affected groundwater remains in the original area of contamination.
No means EPA has reviewed all information on known and reasonably expected groundwater contamination, and the migration of contaminated groundwater is not stabilized.
Insufficient data means that due to uncertainty regarding contaminated groundwater migration, EPA cannot draw conclusions as to whether the migration of contaminated groundwater is stabilized.
Yes means the physical construction of the cleanup is complete for the entire site.
No means either physical construction is not complete or actions are still needed to address contamination.
|Sitewide Ready for Anticipated Use||Yes||Yes means:
No means that one or more of these three criteria have not been met. However, a site listed as no may still have redevelopment occurring on portions of the site and may be eligible for additional redevelopment.
