Superfund Site Profile
The 2-acre Gold Coast Oil Corp. site is located in Miami, Florida. It includes the area where Gold Coast Oil operated an oil and solvent reclamation facility and bulk storage area from the early 1970s to 1982. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and CSX Transportation, the site’s primary 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. The PRP removed nearly 900 tons of contaminated soils and treated over 80 million gallons of water. After the PRP completed cleanup activities, EPA took the site off the NPL in 1996. The Agency completed the site’s final Five-Year Review in 2001. EPA does not anticipate additional work at the site.
