The Ingham County Pollution Prevention Program (P2) is responsible for inspecting facilities that use and/or store toxic, hazardous, or polluting substances. Inspectors ensure that facilities utilize and dispose of hazardous materials properly, thereby preventing environmental contamination/exposure to the environment.
The intent of the Ingham County Pollution Prevention Program (P2) is to identify and disclose facilities that have toxic, hazardous, or polluting materials in order to protect ground waters of Ingham County and to disclose information to First Responder Personnel in case of an emergency.
This program applies to any facility that manufactures, stores, uses or produces an aggregate volume of more than 56 gallons or 450 pounds of toxic, of hazardous or polluting substance. There are some facilities which are exempt, such as: retail facilities, universities, hospitals, and agricultural operations.
Facilities are required to submit an updated P2 Status Sheet by March 1, of each reporting year. Facilties are also required to have an inspection by Health Department staff on a regular basis. Initially these inspections are every year. After two years in full compliance, facilities can be placed on reduced frequency status.
In the event of an environmental incident, the P2 Program can provide first responders with:
- Business Information
- Facility Contacts
- Fresh Chemical Inventory
- Waste Chemical Inventory
