SITE BACKGROUND

The 1-acre Florida Petroleum Reprocessors site is located in Davie, Florida. It includes the area where an oil reprocessing facility operated from 1979 to 1992. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1998 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. Both residents and businesses use the public water system for drinking water. Through ongoing removal actions, groundwater treatment and monitoring, EPA and FDEP continue to protect people and the environment from site contamination.
