As the local Certified Unified Program Agency, the HMMS is the local agency responsible for administering the five CUPA Programs:

  1. Hazardous Materials Inventory and Business Response Plan

  2. Hazardous Waste Generation and Treatment (Tiered Permitting)

  3. Underground Storage Tanks

  4. Above ground Petroleum Storage Tanks

  5. Accidental Release Prevention

Additionally, HMMS provides emergency response 24 hours each day, seven days per week, to any emergency situation requiring Health Department Oversight, including hazardous materials releases from vehicle accidents or industrial upsets, sewer spills, restaurant fires or closures, or abandoned or dumped chemicals. The HMMS also oversees the cleanup of contaminated sites and operates the pesticide incident reporting program.

The HMMS conducts education and outreach activities, to educate members of the regulated community and the general public, about how to protect workers, the public and the environment, and about environmental laws and regulations. The HMMS also conducts enforcement activities, including issuing notices of violation and referring cases to the Office of the District Attorney, for violations of environmental laws and regulations.
