State Underground Petroleum Environmental Response (SUPER Act)/Dry Cleaning Solvent Surveillance Program
The objective of the State Underground Petroleum Environmental Response (SUPER Act)/Dry Cleaning Solvent Surveillance program is to identify areas in the state having drinking water contaminated with petroleum and dry cleaning solvents from leaking underground storage tanks.
When contamination is identified, the department ensures notification of the users of the impacted drinking water sources, evaluates potential adverse health effects and assists in obtaining treatment systems or alternative sources of drinking water.
The program assists the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in assessing the priority for contaminated site cleanups, responding to petroleum and perchloroethylene spills, evaluating risk assessments and carrying out investigations relative to groundwater contamination.
