Raytheon Company advised the community at a recent public meeting that there is no human health threat associated with groundwater in the vicinity of its facility located at 1501 72nd Street North. The company delivered two reports that led to this conclusion to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection on May 30, 2008. Both the Environmental Site Assessment required by the Florida DEP and the voluntary Health Risk Assessment were conducted by nationally recognized environmental and health experts. These reports are based on extensive testing and analysis of data from hundreds of monitoring and test wells. The analysis specifically examines potential health threats associated with the use of groundwater for irrigation and other potential purposes.
