WEST JORDAN LEPC Agenda
Business representatives and the general public who are interested in emergency planning and emergency preparedness are invited. The meeting is chaired by Battalion Chief Reed G. Scharman, Emergency Program Manager for West Jordan. If you have questions about the meeting please feel free to contact Reed at 801-260-7300.
Tier II Reporting
Businesses operating within the boundaries of the City of West Jordan that have reportable quantities of hazardous materials, as specified by the Environmental Protection Agency reporting lists, will report those quantities to the West Jordan LEPC annually on a Tier II report.
Electronic submittal of Tier II reports is accomplished with the software provided by the Environmental Protection Agency. Send the transmittal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
