Superfund Site Profile
The Wingate Road Municipal Incinerator Dump site is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It includes the area where the City of Fort Lauderdale operated a waste incineration facility from 1954 to 1978. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1989 because of contaminated soil, sediment and surface water resulting from waste disposal practices.
The EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the City of Fort Lauderdale, 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 now connects area residences to the public water supply. By cleaning up contaminated soil, monitoring the cleanup and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, the EPA, FDEP and the site PRP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
