NOTIFICATION OF DEMOLITION OR ASBESTOS RENOVATION.


The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) administers an asbestos removal program.

The program's intent is to prevent the release of asbestos fibers to the outside air during demolition or renovation activities.

The program requires prior notification to the DEP on the removal of threshold amounts of asbestos from certain types of facilities.
