Project Description

The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to Know Act (EPCRA) Section 313 (Toxic Release Inventory reporting) informs the public of toxic chemical releases to the environment and toxic chemical waste management. For each reportable chemical exceeding applicable thresholds, required facilities must submit information to the EPA and the Washington State Department of Ecology. Whatcom Environmental assists clients in determining threshold exceedances, releases to the environment, and waste disposal methodologies and quantities and reporting them electronically via EPA’s TRI-MEweb. Submittals to TRI-MEweb fulfill both federal and state reporting requirements. Note that Whatcom Environmental may only prepare a report on a client’s behalf; submittal must be done by an authorized facility representative.
