HEALTH CONSULTATION

STAUFFER CHEMICAL COMPANY
TARPON SPRINGS, FLORIDA

 

CONCLUSIONS

Based on the information reviewed, ATSDR concludes the following:

  1. Surface soil samples from the Gulf View Elementary School did not contain chemical or radionuclide contaminants at levels that would pose a public health hazard.

  2. Surface soil samples from the Stauffer Chemical site contained elevated concentrations of arsenic and radionuclide contaminants. These contaminant levels do not pose an imminent and substantial endangerment to human health. However, long-term exposures to the contamination could pose a public health hazard.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Continue to restrict access to on-site contamination until appropriate remedial actions have been implemented.
