Superfund Site Profile
The 4-acre Chevron Chemical Company (Ortho Division) site is located in Orlando, Florida. The site includes industrial property. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1994 because of contaminated soil and groundwater resulting from past operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Chevron, the site’s potentially responsible party (PRP), 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. Nearby residents and businesses use the public water system for drinking purposes. Fencing prevents access to the site. By conducting ongoing groundwater monitoring and required Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
