The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is hosting a public informational meeting to gather public input to assist in the development of Florida’s State Beneficiary Mitigation Plan under the Volkswagen Diesel Emissions Environmental Mitigation Trust.
For individuals who are unable to attend an in-person meeting, the Department will host two webinars. The Department will announce the dates and times for those webinars in the near future. All presentation materials used at the in-person meeting and webinar will also be posted to the Department’s website.

An online public survey will also be available for a period of 60 days. The survey period will close on May 12, 2018.
