Pollution Incident Reporting Rule Moves Forward

|

On November 15, 2016, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) published its Notice of Change and Statement of Estimated Regulatory Costs (SERC) regarding its proposed rule on “notice of pollution.” The Notice includes additional changes to FDEP’s November 4, 2016, draft proposed rule, which was the subject of a rule adoption hearing conducted by FDEP from November 7 through 9. The Notice of Change reflects FDEP’s revised rule proposal.

Hopping Green & Sams’ Mike Petrovich, Robert Manning, and David Childs prepared a summary to assist entities in evaluating this revised rule proposed in comparison to FDEP’s Emergency Rule and original Proposed Rule.
