Superfund Site Profile
Beazer East, Inc. and Cabot Corporation are the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs).

Residences and businesses are connected to the public water supply by a waterline.
The Cabot/Koppers site is located in Gainesville, Florida and includes two properties, the Koppers property and the Cabot Carbon property. The Koppers property includes the area where a wood-treating facility operated between 1916 and 2009. The Cabot Carbon property includes the area where a charcoal production facility operated. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1984 because of contaminated soil and groundwater resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), and Beazer East, Inc. and Cabot Corporation, 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. A water line connects residences and businesses to the public water supply. By treating groundwater, testing soil, conducting cleanup activities and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and site PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
