Superfund Site Profile
Broward County operated a waste management facility from 1964 to 1987. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater, sludge and soil resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Broward County, the site’s 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. After cleanup, EPA took the site off the NPL in 2006.
