Tallevast, Florida Groundwater Toxic Contamination

Residents of Tallevast, Florida claim they developed health problems as a result of exposure to chemicals produced at a plant once owned by Lockheed Martin. Lockheed acquired the former American Beryllium Company (ABC) machine and metalworking plant when it purchased Loral Metals Technology in 1996. Prior to Lockheed’s sale of the property in 2000, an environmental assessment discovered the presence of volatile organic compounds in groundwater at the site. Plaintiffs claim Lockheed failed to timely warn residents of the presence of these chemicals. In September 2010, more than 270 Tallevast residents settled with Lockheed for undisclosed amount.
