Hazardous Chemical Facilities covered by Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requires that companies must submit an Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Form to the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), and the local fire department annually. Facilities provide either a Tier I or Tier II form that documents chemicals. The Community Right-to-Know provisions help increase the public's knowledge and access to information on chemicals at individual facilities, their uses, and releases into the environment. The Community working with facilities can use the information to improve chemical safety and protect public health and the environment.
Starting the reporting year 2010 the LEPC has decided to go with a more user friendly way to report Tier II items. The new system is called E-Plan. Information and instructions on how to use this new system can be obtained by going to
. This system is free and is easier to use for the reporting party as well as the first responder.
The deadline line for reporting is March 1st.
You have to report if you store or possess hazardous chemicals in quantities equal to or exceeding 55 gallons/500 pounds. If you would like to know more about Tier II reporting and how it may affect you or even if you have a reportable quantity, please go to the following website:
As a citizen you are afforded the right under the Community Right-to-Know Act to have access to the businesses in your area that report Tier II information. This way you will know what is being stored in your community.
If you have questions about e-plan, Tier II reporting, or if you are a citizen and want to request a Tier II report of a business you can contact the following people:
