USEPA Seeks Public Comments on Reporting Hydraulic Fracturing Chemicals

frackingThe United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is seeking public comments on hydraulic fracturing. Topics include the type of chemicals and mixtures that could be reported and disclosed under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and the methods that should be used to obtain the information, including non-regulatory approaches. USEPA is also soliciting input about incentives and recognition programs that could support the development and use of safer chemicals in hydraulic fracturing.

The comment period will close August 18, 2014. Comments should be submitted to the Federal Register at this link, using docket ID number EPA-HQ-OPPT-2011-1019. Following the 90-day comment period, the agency will evaluate the submitted comments as it considers appropriate next steps.
