The SGP site is located in Sanford, 25 miles northeast of Orlando, in Seminole County, Florida. The site includes the former SGP facility, an unnamed tributary and a portion of Cloud Branch Creek (from the unnamed tributary to where the creek discharges into Lake Monroe). Residences and commercial businesses border the site. Potential future uses of the site include commercial and mixed commercial-residential redevelopment.
Nationwide, redevelopment at Superfund sites has resulted in opportunities for communities to reclaim and reuse thousands of acres of formerly contaminated land. Superfund sites designated as SWRAU have significant redevelopment potential that can contribute to the health and prosperity of communities.
Under Administrator Pruitt’s leadership, the Superfund program has reemerged as a top priority to advance the Agency’s core mission of protecting human health and the environment.
