Superfund Site Profile
The 4.5-acre B&B Chemical Co., Inc. site is located in Hialeah, Miami-Dade County, Florida. It includes the area where B&B Tritech, Inc. (formerly B&B Chemical Co., Inc.) began operations in 1963. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and B&B Tritech, 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 pose a threat, since the groundwater attained the cleanup goals and contaminated soil on-site is under pavement and protected by Restrictive Covenant. By undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
TOPICS IN FOCUS
This site was delisted June 6th, 2014. Since low level contamination was left below the pavement on-site, Five Year Reviews will be required until no contamination is above remediation levels. Vapor Intrusion was evaluated and determined that indoor air quality was not a risk for this site.
