In 2014, DEP took enforcement action against South Palafox Properties, LLC., revoking their permit for the Rolling Hills construction and demolition (C&D) debris disposal facility located at 6990 Rolling Hills Road, Pensacola, due to compliance issues. The compliance issues included failure to apply soil cover, elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) emanating from the facility, impacts to groundwater and surface water, and disposal of unauthorized waste. South Palafox petitioned the department’s action, and the case went before an administrative law judge.
