Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Reporting (EPCRA)

The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-know Act (EPCRA),  under the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), Title III, was enacted in 1986 by the Environmental Protection Agency to help communities plan for emergencies involving hazardous substances. George Mason University is committed to this act and provides all essential information regarding the storage of hazardous materials on our campuses to the appointed Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC) for each county or city as required; including updates to our Integrated Contingency Plan. EHS also submits Tier II reports annually as required to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (VADEQ).
