Question # 125

125. Two manufacturing establishments, owned by the same corporation, are divided by a public railroad. One establishment has rented parking lot space from the other establishment and a walkway was constructed so the employees can go over the railroad tracks to the parking lot. Is this a multi-establishment facility or two separate facilities?
Two establishments owned by the same corporation separated by a railroad constitute one facility for Section 313, since they are still physically adjacent to one another except for a public right-of-way. Therefore, reporting thresholds would be determined by the combined toxic chemical quantities processed, manufactured, or otherwise used at both establishments.
