Superfund Site Profile
The Sherwood Medical Industries site includes the area where medical supply manufacturers have operated since 1959. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater, sediment, soil and surface water resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and American Home Products Corporation (AHPC), 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 treating and monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
