Superfund Site Profile
The 90-acre Madison County Sanitary Landfill site is located in Madison, Florida. It includes the area where a landfill received domestic and industrial waste from 1971 to 1980. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990 because of contaminated soil and groundwater resulting from facility operations. EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the City of Madison, Madison County and ITT 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. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. By monitoring groundwater and undertaking Five-Year Reviews, EPA, FDEP and the site’s PRPs continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
