The State of Florida is a leader in implementing site closure with conditions using Institutional Controls (ICs) and the last four years have seen important developments in the closure of sites using several forms of durable governmental and non-governmental institutional controls.  This panel will examine the current state of practice in the application of ICs in closing sites that have been a liability for a long time and for sites where remediation is simply no longer cost-effective or feasible.  What are the various forms of ICs being submitted to FDEP? What are their legal basis?  How and when to use one IC vs. another? Where is this issue headed for in the future? What additional forms of durable IC are in the works? This is anticipated to be a very lively panel of instructors and you must come and learn from experts that are in the forefront in advising banks, developers, investors, and responsible parties in how to close a site with the appropriate institutional controls.
