About LEPC

    exercise

The Tampa Bay Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), District 8, is charged with facilitating regional hazardous materials emergency response and compliance with hazardous materials reporting laws.


Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), also known as the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA), requires public and private facilities that use, produce or store extremely hazardous substances or hazardous chemicals, to report their inventories on an annual basis.


The Tampa Bay Regional Council serves as the public access repository for the reports filed under Sections 311/312 of EPCRA in the District 8 LEPC area which includes Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, and Pinellas counties. This information is used to compile local and regional hazardous materials emergency response plans which are put into action in the event of a chemical emergency. The plans are updated regularly as more facilities come into compliance or as inventories change. Information under Sections 311/312 of EPCRA is also available to the public by calling John Meyer, Tampa Bay LEPC Coordinator at (727) 570-5151, Ext. 29.
