Superfund Site Profile
The Normandy Park Apartments site is located in Temple Terrace, Florida. It includes the area where Gulf Coast Recycling operated a battery recycling and secondary lead extraction facility between 1953 and 1963. The recycling and smelting processes resulted in the release of sulfuric acid and lead into the environment. EPA proposed the site for listing on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1995. EPA decided not to list the site on the NPL following extensive cooperation from Gulf Coast Recycling.
EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the site’s potentially responsible party (PRP) – formerly Gulf Coast Recycling and now Envirofocus, have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination.
