Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) Title III / Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act
(K.A.R. 28-65-1, K.S.A. 65-5701, and P.L. 99-499)
Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) establishes requirements for federal, state, and local governments, Indian tribes, and industry regarding emergency planning and "Community Right-to-Know" reporting on hazardous and toxic chemicals. The Community Right-to-Know provisions help increase the public's knowedge and access to information on chemicals at individual facilities, their uses, and releases into the environment.
EPCRA was passed in response to concerns regarding the environmental and safety hazards posed by the storage and handling of toxic chemicals.
