The 5-acre 62nd Street Dump site is an inactive industrial waste disposal area in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida. Several marsh areas and a series of fish breeding ponds lie adjacent to the site. The site overlies a series of sedimentary rock aquifers, which are currently used as drinking water sources. In the mid-1970s, the site was used as a sand borrow pit. After the operation halted, industrial wastes, including auto parts, batteries, and kiln dust were dumped onsite. Industrial dumping ceased in 1976, but unauthorized onsite dumping of construction materials and household garbage continued. The contamination was determined to be the result of waste material leaching from the landfill. The Record of Decision (ROD) addresses source remediation and onsite and offsite ground water contamination. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, debris, and ground water are organics including PCBs; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead.
