EPA Superfund Program: PEPPER STEEL & ALLOYS, INC., MEDLEY, FL

Superfund Site Profile

The Pepper Steel & Alloys, Inc. site is located in Medley, Florida. It includes three areas where a variety of manufacturing operations took place from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1984 because of contaminated soil resulting from facility operations.

EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), Miami-Dade County’s Department of Environmental Response and Management (DERM) and the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs) 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. Through cleaning up contaminated soil, putting institutional controls in place and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
