SARA 302



SECTION 302, Paragraph (c):

This provision in the law requires a facility to notify the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) and the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) by letter if it has one or more extremely hazardous substance (s) above the Threshold Planning Quantity (TPQ). Each facility, which meets this specification, must notify the SERC and the LEPC that their facility is subject to the requirements of Section 302. In Lowndes County, the LEPC is the Lowndes County Local Emergency Planning Committee.  The notification must be made within 60 days from when the Threshold Planning Quantity is exceeded or met.

The SERC is the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency for all reports except for the SARA 313 Form R reports which must be submitted to the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality by July 1st of each year.

You can find a sample form that can be used to submit to the LEPC and Mississippi Emergency Management Agency.  Click here
