Description
Excerpt: This document includes examples of chemical management activities that coal mining facilities may conduct, illustrating how these activities should be considered for EPCRA Section 313 reporting purposes. This chapter also notes area where potential errors in reporting might be encountered generally by coal mining facilities, which are based on information from written comments received from industry representatives, as well as from comments made by participants in EPA-sponsored EPCRA workshops.
