The Ellman Battery Company operated a lead acid battery company from 1962 to 1991. The operations included battery sales and demolition activities for the recovery of lead components. Waste disposal records for this company were not available, however, battery casings and lead fragments can presently be observed in the soil along the southern portion of the property. A sampling investigation performed by the Florida DEP revealed lead concentration in the soil ranging from 470 to 19,000 mg/kg at the site.
