Superfund Site Profile
The BMI-Textron site is located in Lake Park, Florida, just north of West Palm Beach. It includes an area where various companies have conducted manufacturing operations since 1969. One company, BMI-Textron, performed soil cleanup actions at the site in 1984 and 1990. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990 because of contaminated groundwater resulting from facility operations. EPA, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and BMI-Textron, the site’s potentially responsible party (PRP), investigated site conditions and took steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. In 2002, after groundwater achieved drinking water standards, EPA took the site off the NPL. EPA does not anticipate additional work at the site.
