Reporting releases to State and local response authorities

When is a release reportable to State and local response authorities?

EPCRA State and local emergency notification requirements apply to the release of a CERCLA hazardous substance or an EHS in an amount equal to or greater than their RQs. EPCRA exempts from State and local reporting releases that result in exposure to persons solely within the site or sites on which a facility is located.
