Risk-Based Corrective Action

The Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida, Chapter 24 was amended on March 8, 2001 to implement Risk Based Corrective Action (RBCA) principles for the cleanup of contaminated properties within the County.

This ordinance applies to properties not eligible for State of Florida cleanup provisions identified in 62-777 and 780, Florida Administrative Code (Petroleum, Dry-cleaning, and Brownfields Cleanup Programs), yet required to conduct pollution remediation.

The code, as amended, establishes cleanup target levels for soil, groundwater, and surface waters and sets forth the requirements and procedures for site rehabilitation in: discovery, notification, assessment, natural attenuation, risk assessment, remediation, no further action with conditions and related issues.
