The 35-acre Agrico Chemical site is a former fertilizer manufacturing facility located in Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida. In 1920, the production of superphosphate fertilizer began. The source rock used in the process was fluorapatite, which also contained silica and trace levels of aluminum and uranium. The ROD addresses a final remedy for contaminated soil and sludge at the site as OU1 to prevent current or future exposure. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil and sludge are VOCs; other organics including PAHs and pesticide residues; metals, including arsenic and lead; and radioactive materials.
