The 1,943-acre Homestead Air Force Base (Homestead AFB) site is a former U.S. Air Force (Air Force) installation in Homestead, Florida. About half of the installation remains an active Air Reserve Base. Miami-Dade County, other agencies and organizations have reused remaining portions of the site for office space, storage and training facilities. Former operations at the installation resulted in contaminated soil, groundwater and surface water. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1990.
EPA, the Air Force, 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. The site's contamination does not pose a threat to people living or working near the site. The Air Force is currently re-evaluating all operable units (OUs), at the installation.
