Preferred Project Period:
6/7/10 - 8/27/10

Desired Education Level(s):

Project Title:
Risk Management Program Facility Data Analysis

Sponsoring Office:
Region 10

Project Overview:
The Clean Air Act Risk Management Program was created to prevent and prepare for releases of toxic and flammable substances that have the potential for catastrophic consequences. The Risk Management Program requires facilities that produce, handle, process, distribute, or store greater than a threshold quantity of any listed toxic or flammable extremely hazardous substance to develop a risk management program, prepare a Risk Management Plan (RMP), and submit the RMP to EPA. The Risk Management Program is used to monitor and inspect the compliance of facilities with an RMP. The fellow will perform research and assist in the analysis of the prioritization methodology for facilities with accidental releases. The project may also involve data analysis of the RMP Access Database with the National Database on identifying trends in facility compliance. The fellow will have the opportunity to interact with other federal, state, and local government agencies and will be exposed to the broader mission of the Emergency Response Unit.

Project Goals:
The fellow will gain knowledge of EPA's RMP, Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, and other emergency response programs concerning the prevention of chemical releases that could affect the environment and the public. The fellow will enhance his or her skills in writing, communication, data analysis, and presentations and will participate in briefings, meetings and field work. The fellow will understand the challenges posed to EPA and the regulated community as they relate to enforcing and complying with the Risk Management Program and prioritizing methods for compliance.

Final Product of the Project:
The fellow will develop a report and present his or her findings on the prioritization methodology of facilities and trends in facility compliance.

Project Location:
EPA Region 10, Seattle, WA
