Superfund Site Profile
The Solitron Microwave site is an industrial property in Port Salerno, Florida. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1998 because of contaminated soil and groundwater resulting from former metal plating and manufacturing activities. EPA and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) 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 threaten people living and working near the site. EPA and FDEP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination with annual sampling of the groundwater to ensure natural attenuation is occurring and by conducting Five-Year Reviews.
