Superfund Site Profile
The 9-acre General Dynamics Longwood site (also known as the Gould Property) is located in Longwood, Florida. It includes the area where the General Dynamics Corporation manufactured printed circuit boards and other electronic equipment from the mid-1960s to the early 1980s. In 1994, a new owner purchased the property and used it as the location of a publication business. The site property is not currently in use. After initial investigations, EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 2010 because of soil and groundwater contamination.
EPA believes that contaminated groundwater from the site has merged with contaminated groundwater from the adjacent Sprague Electric Company site. Site contamination does not currently threaten local residents living and working near the site. EPA has identified potentially responsible parties (PRPs) that could potentially undertake or support site investigations and cleanup. EPA is currently negotiating with the PRPs to perform site investigations and evaluate cleanup alternatives. One PRP has placed filters on two private drinking water wells. All other residents and businesses use the local public water system for drinking water.
