The Chesterfield Emergency Planning Committee is authorized to function under the Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act of 1986. Its purpose is for the community to work with first responders, to create a working plan that outlines emergency response to natural disasters and hazardous materials situations and to coordinate the Community's Right-to-Know Act.
Tier II Chemical Inventory Reports
Facilities covered by the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requirements must submit an Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory form to the locality in which they are located as well as to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VDEQ). Under the federal requirements, facilities must submit Tier II information by March 1 for the activities occurring in the preceding year. Chesterfield County requires a single copy of the report, sent to the CEPC. Multiple copies are not necessary as the report is filed in an area accessible by the Fire Department, CEPC and the Emergency Management Office. Tier II reports should be sent to Chesterfield Emergency Planning Committee (CEPC) c/o Chesterfield Emergency Mgmt. PO Box 40, Chesterfield, VA 23832.
Reporting forms and instructions for use of those forms can be found on the US Environmental Protection Agency’s website.
Separate reporting requirements for the Commonwealth of Virginia can be found on the VDEQ website.
