Hazardous Materials Assessment

  • Dorothy Rainey

Manatee County, through Land Development Code requirements, ensures that sites under review for development have demonstrated there are no hazardous materials on-site.


A hazardous materials assessment may be requested by Development Review staff while reviewing a project that likely involved the on-site use of hazardous materials in the past. Section 542.7 of the Land Development Code addresses this subject (note:  once you link to the section, scroll down to subsection 542.7). If hazardous materials are found on-site according to the report, the applicant is asked to provide a remediation plan to indicate how the hazardous material will be dealt with prior to commencement of construction.
