MEETING NOTICE

Mercer County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)
Wednesday - June 9, 2021
9:30 AM
Microsoft Teams Virtual Meeting


Please plan to attend.






The L.E.P.C. of Mercer County was created as a direct result of Congress passing Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of 1986. Congress enacted this law to help local communities protect public health, safety and the environment from chemical hazards. The L.E.P.C is the focal point for Title III activities in the Community.


EPA's Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Prevention Office has Just released a new, improved version of the popular guide Chemicals In Your Community.  The guide explains how both Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act and the chemical accident prevention provisions of the Clean Air Act Work, tells citizens where they can get access to chemical information, and indicates how the public can use these various sources of information to build a snapshot of chemicals stored in their community.
