4 Companies to Pay $300K in EPA Penalties for EPCRA Reporting Violations
Under EPCRA, businesses that manufacture, import, process, or use certain toxic chemicals in amounts that exceed set thresholds are required to report to EPA and local fire departments in order to facilitate emergency response. The companies affected by this EPA enforcement action span a range of diverse industries, illustrating the wide reach of EPCRA reporting responsibilities.
Among the businesses fined for EPCRA noncompliance are:
- A Pasco, WA pesticide and chemical distributor that failed to report significant quantities of more than 80 different chemicals—including storing 990 times the reportable threshold of anhydrous ammonia;
- A Sumner, WA seafood distributor that stored more than 500 pounds each of ammonia and sulfuric acid; and
- Two poultry processing facilities in Kelso, WA and Roy, WA that between them failed to report ammonia, sulfuric acid, carbon dioxide, sodium hydroxide solution, ferric chloride solution, lead, and nitrogen.
