EPA Superfund Program: SCHUYLKILL METALS CORP., PLANT CITY, FL

Superfund Site Profile

The Schuylkill Metals Corp. Site is the former location of a battery recycling facility that operated from 1972 to 1986. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated sediment, soil, surface water and groundwater resulting from former waste disposal practices. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and 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. The Site's soil and groundwater contamination is not a threat to nearby residents and businesses. By monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the Site’s PRP continue to protect residents and the environment from Site contamination. EPA took the Site off the NPL in 2001.
