The 150-acre Florida Steel site is located 2 miles northwest of Indiantown, Martin County, Florida. In 1969, the Indiantown site was acquired by Florida Steel Corporation (FSC) for the purpose of constructing a steel mill using electric arc furnace technology for recycling scrap steel, primarily junk automobiles, into new steel products. The ROD addresses the remaining contaminated onsite soil, sediment, and debris as OU1. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment and debris are organics, including PCBs; and metals, including lead.
