Superfund Site Profile
The Taylor Road Landfill site is located in Brandon, Florida. It includes a county-owned area where a residential, commercial and industrial landfill operated from 1976 to 1980. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater resulting from waste handling practices. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Hillsborough County, the site’s primary 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. A water line connects nearby residences and businesses to the public water supply. By monitoring groundwater, placing institutional controls on the site property and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
