Amendments to EPCRA – America’s Water Infrastructure Act: A Guide for SERCs, TERCs, and LEPCs

On October 23, 2018, America’s Water Infrastructure Act (AWIA) was signed into law, amending EPCRA. This new legislation requires state and tribal emergency response commissions to notify the applicable State agency (i.e., the drinking water primacy agency) of any reportable releases and provide community water systems with hazardous chemical inventory data. This guide provides information for State Emergency Response Commissions (SERCs), Tribal Emergency Response Commissions (TERCs), and Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs).
