Abstract
Sapp Battery Service, Inc. began an operation to recover lead from used batteries. The process consisted of breaking open used batteries, dumping the acid outside the plant, recovering the lead, and disposing of the broken battery casings in an onsite man-made fishing pond. In 1977 the acid discharge began killing nearby cypress trees. Soils, sediments, surface water, and ground water contaminated with lead, cadmium, arsenic, antimony and other heavy metals were revealed. The selected remedial action for this site includes: excavation of soils and sediments containing contaminant levels above those set in the Risk Assessment; fixation of the excavated soils/sediments and onsite disposal of the solidified matrix into a cell built to Florida Class I Sanitary Landfill Standards; groundwater removal and treatment of the underlying aquifers; treatment and discharge of contaminated surface water from the onsite swamp and the offsite Steele City Bay area; and monitoring program for potable water wells located within a one-mile radius of the site.
