The Florida Legislature has established a state funded program to clean up properties that are contaminated as a result of the operations of a drycleaning facility or wholesale supply facility (Chapter 376, Florida Statutes). The program is administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
The statute was sponsored by the drycleaning industry to address environmental, economic and liability issues resulting from drycleaning solvent contamination. The program provides limited liability protection to the owner, operator and real property owner of drycleaning or wholesale supply facilities for cleanup of drycleaning solvent contamination if the parties meet the eligibility conditions stated in the law.
