Comal County LEPC

What is a Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC)?

LEPC is a voluntary organization that is established in an Emergency Planning District designated by the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC).

Both SERC and LEPCs were established to meet the requirements of the federal Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). LEPCs are required to receive the annual Texas Tier Two (Chemical Inventory) Reports from facilities in their jurisdictions.

The LEPCs use this information to perform hazard assessments for their communities. In addition, the LEPCs must make information from these reports available to the public, upon request. Under EPCRA and the Texas Community Right-to-Know Act, LEPCs may also request additional hazardous chemical information from facilities for emergency planning purposes.
