Remediation Times Archive

2001 - 2013

The Broward Environmental Remediation Times is an official bimonthly publication of Broward County's Environmental Protection and Growth Management Department. The newsletter addresses regulatory updates, technical issues, and announcements associated with the assessment and cleanup of contaminated sites in Broward County.

PLEASE NOTE - In August 2010, Broward County upgraded the webpages for the Environmental Assessment and Remediation (EAR) Section.  Therefore, many of the weblinks provided in earlier editions of the newsletter may no longer be functional.  If you have trouble finding a website listed in an article, please contact the author of the article. 

2013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003 | 2002 | 2001
