This website serves as a source of news and information for the residents of DeLand and the surrounding communities regarding the status of remediation activities at the former manufacturing site located at 590 East International Speedway Boulevard in DeLand, Florida.
Site investigation and remediation efforts at 590 East International Speedway Boulevard are being performed with oversight of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) under these guiding principles:
- Site remediation will be protective of human health and the environment;
- Work will be in compliance with applicable laws and regulations;
- Safety is paramount; and,
- Community concerns and stakeholder input will be respected.
Based on extensive site investigations conducted between 1992 and 2015, the FDEP has determined that there are no unacceptable health or safety concerns related to impacts from historic manufacturing operations. FDEP issued an Order approving the remedial action plan for addressing groundwater impacts on August 30, 2016. Additional information on the Site remedy can be found here.
Active remediation of the source area was completed in 2017. Active remediation included soil mixing with large diameter augers combined with injection of steam and zero-valent iron. Post-remediation performance monitoring, completed in 2018, confirmed that the active remediation met its goals.
Since the source area has been remediated, work has transitioned into natural attenuation monitoring, which examines long term changes to groundwater across the Site. Sampling and analysis of groundwater within a Temporary Point of Compliance (TPOC) groundwater monitoring well network surrounding the Site will continue to ensure compliance with remediation objectives.
