Superfund Site Profile
The Sixty-Second Street Dump site is located in Tampa, Florida. It includes an area used for the disposal of waste materials in the 1960s and 1970s. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated debris, soil and groundwater resulting from past waste disposal operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and 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. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. By investigating site conditions, monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
