Superfund Site Profile
The Standard Auto Bumper Corp. site is located in Hialeah, Florida. It includes the area where Standard Auto Bumper Corporation operated a small electroplating facility from 1959 to 1993. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) of contaminated sites in 1989 because of contaminated soil and groundwater resulting from facility operations. The site now also includes two properties next to the original site boundary. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Miami-Dade County 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.
Both residents and businesses use the public water system for drinking water. Groundwater currently meets federal and state drinking water standards and groundwater monitoring no longer occurs. By monitoring institutional controls and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA and FDEP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
