Toxic Chemical Release WE ARE READY TO HELP

Toxic Chemicals Release Lawyers In Baltimore

The release of toxic chemicals into the environment can have detrimental effects on groundwater. The toxic chemical release inventory program was enacted after a deadly attack of methyl isocyanate in Bhopal, India. Following this incident was a chemical release in West Virginia. As a result, the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) was enacted to inform citizens of the toxic chemicals that were released in their area. It orders the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to annually obtain data on the release of specific toxic chemicals. These two events caused serious issues for those who work around hazardous materials.

Toxics Release Inventory

The EPA governs all actions taken by the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI). The TRI is a database that has information on the release of toxic chemicals and other wastes throughout the United States. The types of industries that are required to submit information include:

  • Chemical
  • Mining
  • Paper
  • Oil
  • Gas

If more than 25,000 pounds of toxic chemicals are produced or 10,000 pounds handled, it must be reported to the TRI. This is needed in order to help decrease the amount of injuries and damages that can be caused by petroleum products, lead, mold, mildew, and radiation.

Radiation can be found in a variety of places that are often marked as safe areas. Radiation can often be found near power plants. Exposure to radiation can occur by using it as a medicine, for x-rays, or in other industry hazards. Mold and mildew can cause water damage to houses or offices by being released in the heating or air conditioning system. These kinds of dangers can sneak up on people, so it is crucial to your well-being that you stay aware of potential contaminants and pollutants in your area.
