The Sydney Mine Sludge Ponds site occupies 9.5 acres of a 1,700-acre former phosphate mining site in Brandon, Hillsborough County, Florida. From 1973 to 1981 the county rented the site for disposal of septic wastes, waste automotive oils, grease trap wastes, and manufacturing cutting oils. Disposal operations ended in September 1981 when the State denied issuance of a second operation permit for the site. The second phase included excavation of approximately 15,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil with onsite treatment by air-drying followed by offsite disposal. This operable unit addresses ground water contamination at the site. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including benzene, toluene, TCE, and xylenes. The selected remedial action for the site includes continued ground water pumping with onsite treatment by air stripping and spray irrigation on land adjacent to the waste disposal site.
