Hazardous Materials Spill Reporting
A variety of laws address reporting of the unauthorized release of solid, liquid, or gaseous hazardous materials.
There are penalties for failing to make a required report. BUT, there are NO penalties for reporting a non-reportable release. When in doubt – report.
In general, requirements fall into three categories. One release may fall into more than one category:
|Criteria||Comment||Who to Call|
|A release or threatened release poses an imminent threat to life safety, property and/or the environment||Emergency Response Needed||911|
When there is a reasonable belief that the release poses a significant hazard to human health & safety, property, or environment.
Health and Safety Code Section 25510:
911 response may or may NOT be appropriate any specific situation.
Written follow up reports are required within 7 days if the release equals or exceeds the Federal Reportable Quantities. See below for links to lists of Federal Reportable Quantities
