The 7-acre Hipps Road Landfill site is an inactive landfill in Jacksonville, Duvall County, Florida. Surrounding land use is rural residential. The site overlies a sedimentary surficial aquifer system, used as a source of drinking water, which has been affected by the site. Types of hazardous waste disposed of onsite included cans of TCE and artillery rounds from U.S. Navy facilities. After onsite operations ceased, the property was divided into lots, and five homes were constructed on the landfill. Subsequently, biota in an adjacent pond died, and area residents began to complain of deteriorating well water quality. In 1983, State investigations confirmed the presence of ground water contamination. In 1989, remedial actions stemming from a 1986 Record of Decision (ROD) commenced. Ground water investigations after 1986 revealed that the ground water contamination plume was not as extensive, and the overall site quality was better than previously estimated. The ROD amends the 1986 ROD for the ground water component. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the ground water are VOCs including benzene; and metals including chromium and lead.
