Area-Wide Optimization Program (AWOP)

What is AWOP?

The Area-Wide Optimization Program (AWOP) is a voluntary multi-state program in which states work together to develop and implement individual state methods to support public water systems with the optimization of their treatment processes and distribution systems. AWOP is designed to assist water systems with optimizing their physical and organizational infrastructures to enhance public health protection, without encountering major improvement expenses.

Hazardous Materials/Petroleum Spills (SWO Incidents)

The current Emergency Planning and Community Right-to Know Act (EPCRA) Section 304 (Emergency Notification) requires facilities to notify the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) housed under Florida Department of Emergency Management (FDEM) and the Local Emergency Planning Commission (LEPC) if there is a release into the environment of an EPCRA extremely hazardous substance (EHS) or CERCLA hazardous substance (HS) that is equal to or exceeds minimum reportable quantities.
