ENVIROS (click here to begin searching)
ENVIROS is Broward County's environmental on-line search engine that searches records within the POSSE Licensing, Inspection and regulatory enforcement database. (POSSE contains information from 2001 forward.) ENVIROS does not, however, include Domestic Wastewater licensing or Environmental Assessment and Remediation licensing information.
To search for Domestic Wastewater Licenses call 954-519-1483 or for more information visit their web page at DomesticWasteWater.aspx.
For Environmental Assessment and Remediation licensing information go to www.broward.org/PollutionPrevention/ContaminatedSites.
The Department's environmental liens are recorded as public documents with the Broward County Records Division. County record searches can be conducted on-line at www.broward.org/records/welcome.htm
