Superfund Site Profile
The Beulah Landfill site includes the area where Escambia County operated a landfill from 1950 to 1984. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990 because of contaminated groundwater resulting from landfill operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the site’s potentially responsible party (PRP), the Escambia County Solid Waste Department (Escambia 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 monitoring surface and groundwater, properly closing the landfill, and conducting Five-Year Reviews, FDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
