Floridians enjoy a veritable outdoor paradise in the Sunshine State. There are countless activities, from fishing, hunting to water sports and beach activities, that we appreciate as residents. No matter where you travel in our great State, there is so much to appreciate. It is also the reason that over 100 million travelers visit Florida every year.
As a result, many environmental problems result from the inappropriate use of our natural resources. Air and water pollution, toxic and hazardous waste, endangered species protection, and balancing public health and environmental values against the protection of private property interests are challenges that face our Florida communities.
Environmental laws are usually created with good intentions, but even a seemingly small change to an environmental regulation can directly and significantly affect developers, businesses, and landowners. For instance, what if you are about to acquire property and you discover it is partially contaminated? Or, what should you do if you are facing possible litigation with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)?
It is critical that we find creative ways to use Florida’s land without jeopardizing our resources. Because the environmental laws are complex, it is often difficult for individuals to interpret these regulations before purchasing or developing a tract of land. Without the proper upfront guidance, real estate purchases and development projects may turn out to be a legal nightmare. This is where an attorney that understands environmental law can assist with matters that pertain to land use, zoning, development, and environmental regulations.
