The Varsol Spill site is located in Miami, Florida. It includes an area of the Miami International Airport where fuel spills occurred starting in 1966. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated groundwater and surface water resulting from these spills. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Eastern Airlines, 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. A water line connects residences and businesses to the public water supply. By cleaning up the site, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRP have protected people and the environment from site contamination.
