About Us

OUR MISSION

The Butler County Local Emergency Planning Committee (BCLEPC), as established pursuant to the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) of 1986, shall prepare hazardous material emergency plans that indicate the facilities that use, produce, or store hazardous substances that are present in Butler County. The BCLEPC shall serve as the repository for reports filed under Title III and shall direct Title III implementation activities and perform outreach programs to increase the awareness, understanding and compliance with the EPCRA.
