SARA Title III Spill-Release Reporting
Chemical releases in Michigan are potentially reportable under one or more of twenty-six different state and federal regulations. Determining which regulations apply to a specific release can be an overwhelming task. The "Release Notification Requirements in Michigan" table was compiled by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) Office of Environmental Assistance to help owners and operators of facilities in Michigan, including vehicles and farms, determine their potential notification and reporting requirements in the event of a chemical release. Check your permits, licenses, registrations, pollution prevention plans, and local ordinances for additional release reporting requirements.
