PUBLIC NOTICE 

 ACCESSIBILITY OF SARA TITLE III HAZARDOUS

SUBSTANCE INFORMATION

Section 324 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act, also known as SARA Title III (Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986, PL99-499) requires public notice at least once annually informing the public of the means to access information about extremely hazardous substances that are manufactured, stored, and used within their community. Follow-up emergency notices may subsequently be issued.
Accordingly, information concerning LEPC meetings, SARA Title III hazardous materials planning which is included in our Osage County Emergency Operations Response Plan, materials safety data sheets (MSDS), hazardous chemical inventory forms, listing extremely hazardous substances manufactured, stored, or used within Osage County can be obtained during normal business by contacting Bryce Romine at 785 828 3323.

Tier II Submission Information 

Facilities covered by The Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) must submit an emergency and hazardous chemical inventory form to the LEPC, the SERC and the local fire department annually. Facilities provide either a Tier I or Tier II form. Most States require the Tier II form. Tier II forms require basic facility identification information, employee contact information for both emergencies and non-emergencies, and information about chemicals stored or used at the facility:
The chemical name or the common name as indicated on the MSDS;
  • • An estimate of the maximum amount of the chemical present at any time during the preceding calendar year and the average daily amount;
  • • A brief description of the manner of storage of the chemical;
  • • The location of the chemical at the facility; and
  • • An indication of whether the owner of the facility elects to withhold location information from disclosure to the public.
 For more information, or to get your Tier II form on line, view the EPA Website.  Mail LEPC copy to the address above and forward a copy to your local fire district/department.
