Pipeline Plan

Pipeline Emergency Response Plan

The goal of the Elmore County Pipeline Response Plan is to provide agencies within Elmore County that have pipeline service running through their jurisdiction. The information needed to assist them with the response and mitigation of a pipeline emergency. This is to include hazard materials release from the pipeline emergency. The plan provides information about facilities and transportation routes that may have the potential to pose a threat to the health and safety of those in and around the pipeline corridor. It provides maps, response and evacuation plans, guidelines and procedures. The Response Plan is established pursuant to Title III the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), the community “Right to Know” law and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration 29 CFR 1910 standard. The objectives of this plan are to describe guidelines for the management of a threatened or actual railroad emergency to include a release of a hazardous material. The plan is meant to serve multiple jurisdictions; recommend task assignments; recommend guidelines and responsibilities; and provide coordination in the planning of all phases of a railroad emergency.
