Hipps Road Landfill is located in Jacksonville Heights, Duval County, Florida. In February 1983 area residents began to complain of a foul odor and taste in the drinking water. Well sampling identified the presence of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in the drinking water. During re-sampling studies, larger suites of VOCs and metals were discovered. Between June and October 1983, the city installed waterlines supplying the site residents with city water. By January 1985 ground water was no longer a source for drinking water in the area. The primary contaminants of concern include: VOCs, TCE, metals, xylene, toluene, benzene. The selected remedial action includes ground water recovery and treatment at the POTW; Subtitle D landfill closure; and institutional controls. The estimated cost for this remedy is $3.9-4.4 million. Capital and O&M costs were not specified separately, however, EPA will fund O&M activities for one year after completion of the remedial action. O&M will continue for 20 years using funds provided by the State of Florida.
