299J.08 COMMISSIONER REPORTS RELEASE; ADVICE, COORDINATION.

Upon receiving notice of an emergency release, the commissioner or a designee shall immediately report the emergency release to the emergency responder of the appropriate local governmental unit, to the Pollution Control Agency if the notice of the release is required by section 115.061, and to any other person or office, as provided by the rules or procedures of the Office of Pipeline Safety. A pipeline operator's report of an emergency release to the commissioner satisfies the notification requirements of section 115.061. The commissioner shall advise the emergency responder concerning appropriate emergency procedures and coordinate the procedures. The commissioner shall also coordinate responses to pipeline accidents with the federal government according to procedures established by the United States Secretary of Transportation.
