Emergency planning and community right-to-know (EPCRA) legislation was included in a bill to reauthorize the Superfund legislation. As a result, these EPCRA requirements came to be known by the section of the statute that authorized them – the Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act (SARA) and the corresponding section number. This legislation created the local emergency planning committees that were tasked with preparing contingency plans for chemicals used and transported in the area that were above certain threshold quantities. SARA also requires annual reporting of inventory levels and releases of hazardous substances. Alpha Terra Science assists with setting up efficient methods to prepare these reports and to maintain the required records.
