Reported Hazardous Materials
There are a large number of fixed site facilities reporting hazardous chemical substances. Planning for each individual facility should be carried out doing a Hazard Analysis. Fixed site facilities report present levels of inventories via Tier II forms. Analysis of these forms indicate storing and/or processing hazardous materials pose an overall limited threat to the general population of Randolph County.
There are 23 hazardous material fixed facilities with 9 of the 23 being an extremely hazardous substance (EHS) fixed facility in the county that are subject to the requirements of SARA Title III and will participate in the planning and Right-to-Know provisions of the law.
All reporting facilities and the hazardous materials they store on site can be found in the attachment below.
