EPA Superfund Program: STAUFFER CHEMICAL CO. (TARPON SPRINGS), TARPON SPRINGS, FL

Superfund Site Profile

The Stauffer Chemical Company (Tarpon Springs) site is located in Tarpon Springs, Florida. It includes an area where chemical manufacturing facilities operated from 1947 to 1981. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1994 because of contaminated groundwater, sediment and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Stauffer Management Company, 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 maintaining the site, monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
