The public is advised that information concerning chemical inventories of certain facilities within Butler County, as well as information concerning Butler County’s chemical response planning efforts, is available for review.

The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986, known as SARA, and/or the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act or EPCRA, provides a framework for chemical response planning in each local planning district, which in this instance, is Butler County. The Butler County Local Emergency Planning Committee (BCLEPC), working with the Ohio Emergency Response Commission (OERC or Commission), the Butler County Emergency Management Agency, and local fire departments, implement these requirements within Butler County. Chemical inventory information for facilities that meet or exceed the reporting threshold requirements of 10,000 pounds for hazardous chemicals or approximately 500 pounds for certain defined extremely hazardous substances is available (the threshold for extremely hazardous substances is as low as one (1) pound in certain instances.)

Information is also available by mail request. Such a request must be facility specific, using forms approved by the BCLEPC. These forms are below or can be obtained from the BCLEPC by calling (513) 785-5810, faxing (513) 785-5811, or writing to BCLEPC, 315 High Street, Hamilton, Ohio 45011. Photocopies of this information are available per the standard reproduction fees of the Butler County Emergency Planning Committee. The local 24-hour phone number for purposes of emergency notification, as required by SARA, is 513-785-5810.
