Miami-Dade Fire Rescue

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue is located at:

9300 NW 41st Street
Doral, FL 33178

A preliminary assessment was performed at the facility on December 18, 2019.  Soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater samples were collected for per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) analyses.  It is unsure whether this facility ever used firefighting aqueous film forming foam (AFFF).  It may have been used fifteen to twenty years ago.  The facility is served by a municipal water supply system.

Laboratory results issued on January 16, 2020 indicated that some of the soil samples were contaminated with perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) at concentrations above provisional cleanup target levels.  Groundwater samples indicate concentrations of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and PFOS exceeded the provisional Groundwater Cleanup Target Level. DEP advised the Florida Department of Health (DOH) of these results and directed them to develop and implement a community sampling plan. DOH reconnaissance efforts did not identify any drinking water supply wells in the area so it is has suspended site activities. DEP will continue to work with the Miami Dade Fire Rescue to develop a cleanup plan to remove or contain the contamination to prevent environmental impact and human exposure. A City consultant has commenced additional site assessment activities.
