EPA Superfund Program: MIAMI DRUM SERVICES, MIAMI, FL

Superfund Site Profile

The 1.2-acre Miami Drum Services site is located in Miami, Florida. It includes the area where the Miami Drum Services company cleaned and recycled drums from 1966 to 1981. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated soil and groundwater resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Miami-Dade County 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 conducting required Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and Miami-Dade County continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination. Miami Transit Authority has continuously used the site as a train maintenance yard since 1982.
