We often take for granted that a number of the chemicals, solvents, and other substances used every day in industry, farming, household cleaning, and even for purifying our drinking water can pose a potential hazard. When used properly, and stored safely, we seldom hear of a problem. However, accidents, fires and unforeseen circumstances do happen.
The Anderson County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) was established to protect the community from harmful and possibly life-threatening effects of a hazardous materials release by developing and implementing policies and procedures for complying with the Emergency Planning and Right-to-Know Act ( EPCRA ), Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA Title III).
