Hazardous Materials – Hazardous materials, including agricultural chemicals, are commonly produced, stored and used in Ada County. Hazardous chemicals are found in over 250 facilities in the county and are regularly transported over the county’s roadways. Railroads, airlines, and pipelines also carry these materials through our community. Hazardous materials incidents occur frequently, although most are minor. Any hazardous materials accident must be reported to the Local Emergency Planning Committee, the Idaho Bureau of Hazardous Materials, and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality.
