The Environmental Protection Commission (EPC) lobby is limited to drop-off services only in response to the COVID-19 emergency as of 3/20/2020. Lobby hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Online, phone and email services are still operational. Staff is working remotely and will continue to perform application/document reviews, on-line meetings, field inspections and investigations.

The SQG Program also partners with EPC’s Air Management Division to perform multimedia inspections at dry cleaners throughout Hillsborough County. Dry cleaners that use perchloroethylene to launder clothes are subject to regulation under both the Clean Air Act and RCRA, and there are additional requirements in the Florida Statutes, as well. The SQG inspector provides compliance assistance for both program areas and reviews the statutory requirements with the operator in a single visit, saving time and resources for both the County and the business owner.
