Who is the owner or operator for purposes of EPCRA 304 release reporting?

Who is the owner or operator?

EPCRA section 304 allows either the owner or operator of a facility to give notice after a release. Owners and operators may make their own arrangements concerning which party is to provide release notification; however, under EPCRA section 304 both the owner and operator are responsible if no notification is provided.
