Title: Public health assessment for Florida Petroleum Reprocessors, Davie, Broward County, Florida, Region 4: CERCLIS number FLD984184127. Final report

Abstract

The Florida Petroleum Reprocessors (FPR) Site in Davie, Florida was listed on National Priorities List on March 27, 1998. Between 1978--1992, it was a waste oil transfer station. The groundwater, soil and sediments are contaminated with volatile organic chemicals, metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Currently, this site poses an indeterminate public health hazard because of contaminated groundwater. In the past, the site posed a public health hazard because private wells in the northern part of the site were contaminated. As a result, these residents are at an increased risk of cancer and non-cancer illnesses from household use of 1,1-dichloroethene and vinyl chloride contaminated groundwater. It is unknown if there are private wells south of FPR property; however, the contamination is moving south, people could be exposed in the future.
