Superfund Site Profile
The 11-acre Coleman-Evans Wood Preserving Co. site is located in Whitehouse, Florida. The site includes the area where Coleman-Evans Wood Preserving Co. operated a wood-preserving facility from 1954 to the mid-1980s. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1983 because of contaminated soil, sediment and groundwater resulting from facility operations. EPA and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) 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 placing an institutional control on the site and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA and FDEP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
