Superfund Site: FIBERS PUBLIC SUPPLY WELLS, JOBOS, PR

Superfund Site Profile

The Fibers Public Supply Wells site is located in Guayama, about two miles north of the Caribbean Sea, on the south coast of Puerto Rico. The 540-acre area includes a former synthetic fibers manufacturing plant. The site also includes five public water supply wells owned and operated by the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA), the Anaquest Caribe facility and adjacent areas. Fiber manufacturing resulted in soil contamination with asbestos-containing materials and groundwater contamination with volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Following cleanup, the site’s remedy is in place. Groundwater treatment is ongoing. Under current conditions at the site, potential or actual human exposures are under control.
