Superfund Site Profile
The half-acre Flash Cleaners site is located in Pompano Beach, Florida. The site is the location of a former dry cleaning facility that operated onsite from 1977 to about 2001, with continued use as a laundry pickup/drop-off station through 2013. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2008 because of contaminated soil and groundwater resulting from dry cleaning activities. 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 threaten people living and working near the site. EPA used an innovative approach to move the site rapidly from investigation into the cleanup phase.
