A resource guide has been established to assist in the activation of a state response to a hazardous materials release and is based on information gathered from the Nebraska Emergency Management Act, standard operating guidelines (SOG) of the Nebraska Hazardous Incident Team (NHIT) and the letter of agreement with the State Emergency Response Teams (SERT).

2019 Spill Reporting in Nebraska

The following whitesheet serves as a guide and does not cover all spill reporting requirements. Refer to the regulations or the resources and contacts listed on the back of this sheet for additional information. Always remember to call your local responders first.

Nebraska law does not allow for spills in any amount. Any party responsible for a spill is expected to immediately, and completely, remediate the area of any contaminants and process the wastes generated in accordance with all applicable rules and policies. Please contact the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE) if there is a spill that cannot be immediately and completely cleaned up. NDEE will assess and advise on potential remedies.
