The Landia Chemical Co. property on West Olive Street in Lakeland, Florida has been designated a "superfund site" by the Environmental Protection Agency. From 1940 to 1987, the land was used for the manufacturing, blending and storing of pesticides. Three different corporations owned the land during this time period. The EPA found high levels of arsenic, copper, mercury, lead, zinc, and several pesticides in drinking water samples taken from municipal wells surrounding the site.

Florida Favorite Fertilizer, owned by PCS Joint Ventures, owns adjoining property and the sulfur used in its production of fertilizer has leaked into the ground water supply.

See your doctor if you live near the Lakeland Landia site and you have experienced serious health problems. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
