In June 2009, the County purchased the property located on Mahogany Mill Road for the purpose of constructing a public boat ramp facility.  In May 2013, during excavation of existing relic foundations, previously undetected soil contamination was discovered and was reported as per Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Rule 62-770. According to FDEP direction, the County conducted environmental assessment and delineated the extent of the contamination. During subsequent meetings with the FDEP regarding remediation, it has been determined that remediation will consist of the installation of a subsurface cap to prevent groundwater contamination. This remedy was determined to be the least intrusive to the ongoing construction schedule and the most cost effective approach.
Funds for this project are available from Community Development Block Grant, Brownfield Redevelopment and Voluntary Cleanup Tax Credit, and will be allocated as follows:  Fund 129, Cost Center 220404, Object Code 53101 - $110,448.09 (2012 CDBG) and Cost Center 220418 - $53,451.91 (VCTC Funds), Object Code 53101.

No legal consideration is necessary for this recommendation.


Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Staff will handle all project management related to the remediation.

The Escambia County, Florida Code of Ordinances, Chapter 46, Article II, Purchases and Contracts, provides for Board approval of contracts in the amount of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) or greater.
Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Staff will handle all project management related to the remediation.
