Does anybody know where to find data that lists the location of sites that have hazardous, toxic or radioactive substances?

I'm working on a HUD project and need to be able to find out if sites for new housing is within a certain distance of gas stations or other places that are potentially hazardous.

Specifically interested in Florida, USA.

Just make sure you are not tagged by the other kind of three-letter outfits for asking such questions... –  Deer Hunter Mar 20 '13 at 7:18
