LEPC regularly monitors emergency releases of Hazardous and Extremely
Hazardous Substances. These cases are reviewed regularly by the LEPC
Spills Subcommittee to determine if proper verbal and written notice has
been provided per the
Emergency Release Notification Guidelines for Cuyahoga County. The Spills Subcommittee also reviews the frequency of reporting to discover
ways to reduce the number of accidents and increase public safety.
Information about these spill notifications can be obtained by downloading, completing and mailing the LEPC Public Information Request Form. The LEPC has been monitoring emergency releases since 1987 and receives 35 to 50 notices per year.
