Who should report spills or release of a pollutant, contaminants, or hazardous materials to ERT?

It's the responsibility of the responsible party to report the spill immediately.  Anyone who witnesses a "spill" or "release" of any of the materials mentioned should immediately call ERT to ensure that the spill is re-mediated properly.

State law mandates under KRS 224 01-0400 (6):

  • Any person possessing or controlling a pollutant or contaminant for which are portable quantity has been established by administrative regulation promulgated pursuant to subsection (2) of this section shall immediately notify the cabinet's twenty-four (24) hour environmental response line, as soon as that person has knowledge of any release or threatened release, other than a permitted release of application of a pesticide in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, of a pollutant or contaminant to the environment in a quantity equal to or exceeding the reportable quantity.  In the notice to be made to the cabinet, the person shall state, at a minimum, the location of the release or threatened release, the material released or threatened to be released, and the approximate quantity and concentration of the release or threatened release.
