Superfund Site Profile
The 35-acre Agrico Chemical Company site is located in Pensacola, Florida. It includes an area where agrichemical production operations took place from 1889 to 1975. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated ground water, sludge and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the site's potentially responsible parties (PRPs) 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 nearby. A water line connects residences and businesses to the public water supply. By monitoring ground water, inspecting the site, placing institutional controls on the site property and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site's PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
