Due to a recent court decision, farms (including ranches, livestock operations and/or animal feeding operations) will soon be required to report hazardous substance air releases from animal waste under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) when they release hazardous substances from animal waste in amounts greater than/equal to their reportable quantity within a 24-hour period.  Attached is a fact sheet (English and Spanish versions) with an overview and FAQs for those who are impacted by this new requirement.

If you have any questions, please contact the Environmental Protection Agency via the information provided below:

Region 7 is also available to answer questions and assist with reporting compliance.  If you have questions please contact Scott Hayes (913-551-7670, Hayes.Scott@epa.gov) or Jodi Harper (913-551-7483, harper.jodi@epa.gov).
