The Gold Coast Oil Corporation (GCO) site is located within a commercial/industrial/residential area and located over the Biscayne Aquifer, the sole source aquifer for the area. GCO, along with Solvent Extraction, Inc., were in the business of distilling mineral spirits, lacquer thinner and reclaiming solvents. Blowdown from these operations was sprayed directly onto the ground and 53 drums of sludge-contaminated soil were stored onsite. No waste was shipped offsite during the 11 years of operation. Investigations of illegally dumped and stored sludge and onsite wells took place in 1980 and in 1981. In 1982 CSX Transportation evicted GCO from the property and agreed to voluntarily clean up the site. Soil and ground water are contaminated with TCE, PCE, other VOCS, lead and other heavy metals. The selected remedial action for this site are given. The estimated total cost for this remedial action is $3,711,600 with present worth O&M of $74,850.
