The 18-acre American Creosote Works (Pensacola Plant) site, is in a dense moderately commercial and residential area of Pensacola, Florida, approximately 600 yards from Pensacola Bay and Bayou Chico. American Creosote Works, Inc. operated a wood preserving facility onsite from 1902 to 1981. EPA signed a Record of Decision (ROD) in 1985 requiring all onsite and offsite contaminated solids, sludge, and sediment to be placed in an onsite RCRA-permitted landfill. Because the State did concur with the selected remedy, no remedial action was taken. Consequently, a post remedial investigation was conducted in 1988 to characterize the extent of contamination. The ROD is the first of two planned operable units and addresses remediation of contaminated surface soil. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the surface soil are organics including dioxins, carcinogenic PAHs, and PCP.
