  • At the Pepper Steel & Alloys, Inc. site in Florida, EPA, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), the Miami-Dade County Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM), and other project partners worked together to clean up the site and return it to productive use. Developing protective institutional controls to support reasonably anticipated future uses, working with prospective purchasers to overcome redevelopment barriers, and sharing information about engineering constraints on site redevelopment has been vital to the site’s transformation from an abandoned, junk-filled lot to a productive property.
