Superfund Site Profile
The 2-acre Airco Plating Company site is an active metal plating facility in Miami, Florida. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990 because of contaminated soil and ground water resulting from plating operations. EPA and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) have investigated site conditions and Airco Plating Company (APC), the site’s potentially responsible party (PRP), has taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. Site contamination does not threaten people living and working near the site. Both residents and businesses use public water systems for drinking water. By cleaning up and monitoring ground water and soil and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
