The primary function of the LEPC is administration of the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) . We are also very active in the Risk Management Planning that facilities are required to perform under the Accidental Release Prevention Program at §112(r) of the Clean Air Act. We are currently creating a local implementation model for this program under a grant from U.S. EPA.
