Discharge Clean Up

A transporter must clean up any hazardous waste discharge that occurs during transportation or take such action as may be required or approved by federal, state, or local officials so that the hazardous waste discharge no longer presents a hazard to human health or the environment. ORS 824.088 requires a railroad to notify the Director of Oregon Emergency Management of the Department of State Police in connection with an incident that occurs during the course of transporting hazardous materials. Hazardous wastes are a form of hazardous material, so all transporters must observe the reporting requirement in connection with incidents involving hazardous wastes. See also OAR Chapter 340, Division 108.
