The types of release reports that are available in ERNS fall into three major categories: substances designated as hazardous substances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended; oil and petroleum products, as defined by the Clean Water Act of 1992 (CWA), as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990; and all other types of materials. ERNS is a database of initial notifications and not incidents, there are several limitations to the data. ERNS primarily contains initial accounts of releases, made during or immediately after a release occurs when exact details are often unknown. There may be multiple reports for a single incident, (this occurs when the caller makes a second report to update original data or a private observer reports a release that has already been reported by the facility).
