Superfund Site Profile
The Kerr-McGee Chemical Corp – Jacksonville site is located in Jacksonville, Florida. It includes the area where fertilizer and pesticide were produced from 1893 to 1978. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2010 because of contaminated soil and groundwater resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Tronox, the former site’s potentially responsible party (PRP), have investigated site conditions and taken steps to protect people and the environment from the site contamination. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. A water line connects residences and businesses to the public water system. The site is currently undeveloped and unoccupied. A six-foot chain-link fence surrounds the site to prevent unauthorized entry.
