The Division of Waste Management touches many areas ranging from Brownfields and emerging contaminants to solid and hazardous waste regulation.  It also formulates policy and coordinates with the six regulatory Districts on enforcement and compliance assistance.  This is a class to introduce a wide audience to one of the largest operations units of FDEP.  You will learn what are the Division’s several programs and how they are implemented throughout the State and relate to ensuring that as Florida grows, the Division keeps pace with its mission.  Has compliance assistance paid dividends on RCRA, USTs, solid waste and other program’s compliance?  What are the most common violations on several programs? What do their data and dashboards show? How can most RCRA, UST, and solid waste violations be avoided? What are the latest trends in Risk Assessment and the interaction between the Division and risk assessors?  What are the next areas of engagement in Risk Assessment?  What areas of solid waste are being investigated by top researchers funded by the Hinkley Center for Hazardous Waste and what do their research show? As several cleanup programs mature, what will be emerging contaminants that all stakeholders will have to be prepared for?  How is the Division and industry reacting to these? How does the Division relate to other Divisions? Based on the latest trends our panelists will report on the latest updates in PFAS regulatory, assessment and treatment. This emerging contaminant is sure to be of concern to multiple industrial and governmental sectors. Our panel will consist of past and present state regulatory leaders, private corporate leaders, consultants, attorneys, and professors who will give their impressions and encourage audience participation.
