 EPA TO BEGIN CLEANUP OF CONTAMINATION AT THE ETHANOL CORPORATION
 SITE, PANAMA CITY, BAY COUNTY, FLA.
 ATLANTA, April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will begin a Superfund cleanup at the Ethanol Corporation site in Panama City, Bay County, Fla., on April 23.
 The cleanup will take place under the authority and direction of EPA's Emergency Response and Removal Branch. The cleanup is expected to be completed within one year at an estimated cost of $171,600.
 The Ethanol Corporation site is located at 703 Mulberry Ave. in a mixed residential/commercial area outside of downtown Panama City. The site formerly operated as a fuel blending facility and consists of three buildings: a main office and warehouse, a maintenance shed and a pump house. The warehouse building houses 53 plastic drums of a gasoline additive with a 0.25 percent mixture of picric acid. Several drums are leaking and spillage covers most of the floor area. Twenty- four 55-gallon drums, containing a mixture of methyline chloride, ethylbenzene, xylene and naphthalene, are stored adjacent to the warehouse. Several drums are leaking, and stained flowpaths indicate that the liquid is migrating off the property boundary. There is evidence of on-site soil and groundwater contamination.
 During the initial phase of the cleanup, leaking drums, as well as the spilled picric acid solution, will be contained and stabilized, waste streams will be sampled to determine bulking schemes and disposal options, and soil in areas near the spillage and leaking drums will be sampled to determine the extent of soil contamination.
 The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), also known as "Superfund," and the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) authorize EPA to respond to actual or threatened releases of hazardous substances that may endanger public health, welfare or the environment. This site is not on the National Priorities List (NPL) of hazardous waste sites.
