Superfund Site Profile

The 2017 site FYR is currently underway and EPA and FDEP will use this opportunity to evaluate the future groundwater action needed for the site. Using the groundwater data for the past several years a final remedy will be selected for the groundwater and this decision will be memorialized in a Final Groundwater ROD expected by 2020.

SITE BACKGROUND

The 13-acre Landia Chemical Company (LCC) site is located in Lakeland, Florida. It includes two properties, the former LCC property and the former Florida Favorite Fertilizer (FFF) property; the properties were used for industrial operations beginning in the 1930s and 1940s, respectively. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2000 because of contaminated soil, groundwater and sediment resulting from past facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) 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. Both residents and businesses use the public water system for drinking water. By cleaning up the site and monitoring groundwater, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
