1270 NW 165 STREET

The 4-acre site is located in Sunshine State Industrial Park, an unincorporated part of Miami-Dade County, Florida, near North Miami Beach. The industrial park is located in a mixed residential, commercial and industrial area. The site borders the Palmetto Expressway to the north, Interstate 95 to the east, U.S. Route 441 and the Biscayne Canal to the south, and a residential development to the west. An additional residential development is located south of the site beyond the Biscayne Canal. The site overlies the Biscayne Aquifer, a shallow water table aquifer that serves as the primary source of drinking water for Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Between 1960 and 1978, Anodyne and other companies used the site for a variety of industrial processes. Consumer products produced at the facility included decorative trim, control panels, face plates and equipment dials. Some storage of process chemicals occurred in above-ground tanks enclosed in concrete block structures along the south side of the main facility building. EPA concluded that the facility discharged wastes via pipes through the building wall directly onto the ground outside. A 10-inch-diameter, 90-foot-deep well is also located near the south side of the building. The facility possibly used this well for waste disposal. The well is the likely source of the site’s deep aquifer ground water contamination. In 1990, EPA listed the site on the NPL. Several commercial businesses continue to operate in the former Anodyne facility, including a packaged snack distribution center, a security firm office and a parking facility.
