Hazardous Materials (CUPA)

The Amador County Environmental Health Department is the Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) for Amador County and administers a consolidated hazardous materials program.

State wide hazardous materials programs were established by Senate Bill 1082 and enforced by the California EPA.  This bill unified hazardous waste and hazardous materials management through the use of a regulatory program.  This bill consolidated the following regulatory programs:
