Vanessa Barela April 18, 2007 ENVE 302 Homework 12 1. John Highstepper of ACME Industries accidentally spills about 1 L hexachlorobutadiene. Is this a reportable quantity (RQ) for a release under CERCLA as per 40 CFR 302? If so, what is the governing RQ? What is the statutory source(s) for regulations of this release? Does this RQ have an effect on John’s CERCLA liability? Explain. According to the Table in 40 CFR 302.4 the amount released is a reportable quantity. The governing RQ is 1.68 kg/L. The statutory source for regulations of this release is 2, 3, and 4. A‘‘2’’ indicates that the source is section 307(a) of the Clean Water Act, ‘‘3’’ indicates that the source is section 112 of the Clean Air Act, and ‘‘4’’ indicates that the source is section 3001 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The RQ does have an effect on John’s CERCLA liability, any amount even if less than the RQ can trigger the CERCLA liability for cleanup. 2.
