HEALTH CONSULTATION

TARPON SPRINGS PRIVATE WELLS
(STAUFFER CHEMICAL COMPANY)
TARPON SPRINGS, PINELLAS COUNTY, FLORIDA


CONCLUSION

Based upon the information reviewed, we conclude that carcinogenic and non-carcinogenic illnesses are unlikely in children or adults from exposure to chemicals in private well water near the Stauffer site.


RECOMMENDATIONS

Because there is continued community concern about chemicals in private well water near the Stauffer site, the Florida Department of Health recommends that, until site remediation is completed, periodic well samples be analyzed for site-related chemicals to ensure timely detection of any increases. If additional information becomes available concerning chemicals found in private wells near this site, Florida DOH will evaluate that information to determine what actions, if any, are necessary.
