Incident Reports

Information on Incident Reports

Occasionally, a facility will have a significant accidental release of air contaminants, or an air pollution event will occur within the District, in which the District believes there is a general public interest. As soon as sufficient information is available, District staff will prepare a preliminary incident report. These reports are intended to provide an early overview to the incident, and do not substitute for the in-depth investigation which ultimately follows. The following incident reports are listed in chronological order for the last year.
