The Pioneer Sand site, owned by the Pioneer Sand Company (PSC), is an inactive 11-acre quarry located near Belleview, FL. A disposal permit was granted to PSC in 1974 which allowed the disposal of inert materials including construction debris and shredded automobile strippings. Between 1974 and 1978, phenols and resin compounds were deposited from Newport Industries (currently Reichhold Chemical Company). Domestic and industrial wastes including metal plating sludges were also received from the Pensacola Naval Air Station. In 1981 the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation did not renew the disposal permit and ordered the waste dumping practices to cease. Based on the RI results for PCB analysis of soils at the site, the EPA conducted an Immediate Removal Action in August 1986. All known areas of PCB concentrations greater than 50 ppm were removed. The primary contaminants of concern include: VOCs, organics, heavy metals, phenols, phthalates, and toluene.
