The 345-acre Harris/Palm Bay Facility site is an electronics manufacturing company in Palm Bay, Brevard County, Florida. Surrounding land use is commercial, residential, and industrial. The site overlies an unconsolidated aquifer, which is used by a public wellfield located south of and downgradient of the site, from the 1950s to 1967. In 1981, EPA identified VOCs in ground water wells located south of the Government Systems facility. Ground water contamination was attributed to several onsite incidents at the Government Systems plant including two fires, which resulted in the dumping of chemical vats, a broken acid/solvent line, and spillage at drum storage areas. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including TCE; metals including chromium and lead; and other inorganics including fluoride.
