Florida Department of Environmental Protection - Comments

Welcome to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) Contamination Locator Map (CLM -"Clem"). By specifying an address, a city or a zip code, you can use CLM to locate nearby sites that are currently under DEP's cleanup oversight. Using search criteria, CLM identifies sites by name, address, facility identification number, and cleanup status - active or pending. Although all sites in CLM are suspected or perceived to be contaminated, further investigation may show that some sites are not contaminated. Conversely, some contaminated sites that are still undergoing preliminary screening by the Department may not yet appear in CLM. Sites that are closed or are no longer under DEP's cleanup oversight will not appear in CLM. Also, CLM may not include all information about federal facilities.

The CLM subscription service enables you to track cleanup milestones at contaminated sites listed in CLM.
  • To subscribe to this service, please select a contamination site in CLM, click on the "Watch this site" link and provide an e-mail address where requested in the new window.
  • You may subscribe to more than one site.
  • You will receive an e-mail notification when a contamination cleanup milestone event occurs at your selected sites.
Some of the sites in CLM are currently in the cleanup process and subscribers will be notified when the next milestone event occurs. Other sites are on a priority list awaiting cleanup funding so it may be some time before the first milestone event occurs. For more information on contamination cleanup, please see https://floridadep.gov/waste.

For any other information about cleanup sites call the Waste Cleanup Site toll-free number at 1-866-282-0787. You may leave a message including the name and facility identification number for the site in question. Every effort will be made to return your call within 24 hours.
