SARA Title III: The Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA)

SARA Title III establishes requirements for Federal, State and local governments, Indian Tribes, and industry regarding emergency planning and Community Right-to-Know reporting on hazardous and toxic 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. States and communities, working with facilities, can use the information to improve chemical safety and protect public health and the environment.

Businesses in the Township need to complete the SARA Title III Hazardous Material Reporting Form. You may download the form below or it can be submitted electronically with Adobe Acrobat. Please read the following instructions carefully.
