The Petroleum Restoration Program is designed to protect the public from health risks associated with petroleum discharges.  This program was initiated through a contractual agreement with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP).  Sites included in the assessment are those determined eligible for State funded cleanup, insurance funded cleanup, as well as, voluntary cleanup funded by land owners.  Our division works in conjunction with FDEP to remediate the contamination in accordance with the State Cleanup Target Levels. Our division covers the following counties: Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Washington, and Bay.

When released into the environment, petroleum and petroleum products can contaminate: 

  • Air
  • Groundwater
  • Surface water
  • Soil

The extent of contamination is determined by many environmental factors such as: 

  • Volatilization (release into air)
  • Groundwater flow rate and pathways through zones in groundwater table
  • Biodegradation (microbes may break down contaminant and use as a food source)

The governing authority for this program is Florida Administrative Code 62-777 and 62-780..
