Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Day care in industrial area - Escambia County, Florida
Day care stands in the shadow of a Superfund site

Lesley Conn Pensacola News Journal (FL) April 9, 2006

Kerry Kust got every application and inspection she needed to open her day-care center.

After months of scrutiny by city building officials and state health and day-care inspectors, she opened Sand Castle Academy at 4000 Palafox St. in February.

No one stopped her for being next door to a toxic Superfund site.

But now, more than a month after she opened, the center's future is in jeopardy because of state and federal concerns over its proximity to the site.

"We are very, very concerned about this siting of a day care in an industrial area where it was never meant to be, based on what the (state Department of Environmental Protection) and the EPA tells us," said Dr. John Lanza, director of the Escambia County Health Department.
