A contiguous site is a facility that has multiple buildings, structures, yards, etc. which are owned by the same company and whose boundaries are touching and/or separated by public right-of-ways and have different addresses. Facilities separated by property owned or operated by others are not considered contiguous.
Owners and operators who have multiple facilities that are only separated by a public right of way (contiguous sites) are able to report them on a single report. The separate addresses are reported as different storage locations.
Each substance will need to be reported as follows:
• The aggregate amount for each reportable substance will be listed under the single Facility ID number.
• For each substance stored at a location within the contiguous site, the Facility will need to provide an address for the storage location along with the specific amounts.
• Amounts of a substance in less than a reportable quantity can be shown as “various” if in multiple areas at a storage location within a single building.
There is a contiguous site with three addresses (Facility A, Facility B, Facility C). To create a contiguous site, you will need to create a single facility using the main facility’s address. Then in Step 1: Owner/Operator tab add the contiguous addresses. If you have Sulfuric acid stored at two of the “facilities” within the contiguous site, each storage location should be reported under the single chemical entry and identified by address. So, you will add the chemical Sulfuric Acid, with an aggregated amount entered in the
Maximum Daily Amount field. Then under Storage Locations you will separate the storage amounts.
With a Maximum Daily Amount of 1,000 gallons stored in 2 facilities the storage location will look like this:
500 gallons Facility A Main Floor Warehouse SW
500 gallons Facility C 2nd Floor Chemical Room NW
