EPA Superfund Program: PETROLEUM PRODUCTS CORP., PEMBROKE PARK, FL

Superfund Site Profile

The Petroleum Products Corp. site is located in Pembroke Park, Florida. It includes the area where Petroleum Products Corporation operated a used oil refining facility from 1957 to 1971. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1987 because of contaminated groundwater and soil.

EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), and Petroleum Products Corporation, Pembroke Park Warehouses and the U.S. Navy, the site’s potentially responsible parties (PRPs), have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site to protect people and the environment from contamination. A water line connects residences and businesses near the site to the public water supply. By monitoring groundwater and conducting Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRPs continue to work toward protecting people and the environment from site contamination.
