Superfund Site Profile
The Stauffer Chemical Co (Tampa) site is located in Tampa, Florida. It includes the area where an agricultural chemical product formulation, packaging and distribution facility operated from 1951 to 1986. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1996 because of contaminated groundwater, sediment, soil and surface water resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and 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. By treating and monitoring groundwater, enforcing institutional controls and conducting required Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
