CERCLA and EPCRA Laws Reporting Requirements for Air Releases of Animal Waste

The two environmental laws, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), require reporting of the releases of hazardous substances that either meet or exceed reportable amounts within a 24-hour period.

The EPA has proposed to amend the emergency release notifications under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). The amendment is intended to add a reporting exemption for...
