The 1-acre site is located at 210 Newman Road in southwestern Lake Park, Florida, a few miles north of Riviera Beach. The site is partially paved and includes a 21,000-square-foot building and a former wastewater treatment pond. The site is located in the Tri-City Industrial Park; occupied and vacant commercial and industrial buildings in the park are next to the site. The area surrounding the industrial park includes neighborhoods with low-income and minority residents. From 1978 to 1985, Trans Circuits, Inc. manufactured and plated equipment for circuit boards at the site. The company disposed of liquid waste in an on-site wastewater pond and eventually put in an on-site system for treating wastewater. However, this system did not address all chemical contaminants and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were released into the soil and ground water. Trans Circuits, Inc. closed the facility in 1985. In 1981, EPA sampled the City of Riviera Beach’s nearby public well field for VOCs. In 1984, the City took municipal well (Public Well 17) out of service due to contamination. In 1987, an air stripper treatment system was constructed on the Site to reduce the levels of PCE and TCE. The system captured, treated and redistributed more than one million gallons of ground water during its two years of operation. In 1988, the City of Riviera Beach installed air strippers at their water plant to treat area-wide VOC contamination in the groundwater. The City of Riviera Beach still operates these large scale air stripping towers. Between 1989 and 1998, EPA and FDEP completed several investigations at the site. By 1998, the agencies decided that earlier attempts to clean up the site had been unsuccessful and further action was necessary. In 2000, EPA listed the site on the NPL. In the 2000s, a company used the site for a commercial business. While the site is currently not in use, the owner is marketing the site property for reuse.
