Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)

Hazardous Waste Drums

The Adams County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) is a coordination and planning body for hazardous materials located in the County. In the legislation establishing LEPCs, Congress expressly intends the LEPCs to serve as a focal point in the community for information and discussion about hazardous substance emergency planning, and health and environmental risks.

If you have questions about Tier II reporting, attending the Adams County LEPC meetings, or other topics, please contact Michael Bean, LEPC Coordinator, at 720.523.6603 or [email protected].
