Offsite Soil Data Near Koppers Superfund Site and Other Locations

Soil test data for dioxins(TCDD-TEQ), arsenic (As) and benzo(a)pyrene (BAPTE) contaminants shown on the Interactive Map  and Static Maps below are based on validated results reported to the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the Alachua County Environmental Protection Department (ACEPD).  Sample locations are in road rights-of-way and some private properties. At this time, the full area extent of soil contamination impacts near the Koppers site has not been definitively established. USEPA has committed to additional testing in the area in order to determine the full extent of contamination.

Contaminant levels in samples from locations adjacent to the Koppers Superfund site are potentially linked to contamination impacts from the Koppers site. Contaminant levels above FDEP Soil Clean-up criteria (SCTLs) in soil samples from locations distant or farther away from the Koppers site have not been linked to the Koppers site and may represent impacts from other sources.   

Map information is subject to change and will be updated as new information is  received by ACEPD.

Information on human health risks associated with soil contamination levels indicated in this map is available at the Alachua County Health Department website.   

Interactive Map Data updated as of February 2014.
