     EPA TO CONDUCT CHEMICAL SAFETY AUDIT AT WESTLAKE MONOMERS
                        IN CALVERT CITY, KY.
    ATLANTA, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chemical Accident Prevention Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will conduct a chemical safety audit at Westlake Monomers, Calvert City, Ky., during the week of Nov. 11, 1991.
    According to the 1989 Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reports, Westlake is among the top five emitters of toxic chemicals in Kentucky.  Accidental releases of toxic chemicals as well as permitted releases have occurred at the facility.  The company plans to reduce permitted emissions in 1991 and 1992.
    EPA will work with Westlake to identify causes of the releases in order to determine how recurrences can be prevented.  Chemical safety audits are part of the agency's Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Prevention Program.  The process, procedures, health and safety plans, site locations, and overall facility plans will be reviewed in the audit.  Chemical safety audits are conducted at various facilities throughout the region by EPA, with assistance from state and local agencies.
    EPA will prepare a technical report describing the audit, including findings and recommendations.  The report will be available to the public in four to six weeks following completion of the audit. Persons interested in obtaining a copy of the audit report should contact Pat Steed, U.S. EPA Region IV, 345 Courtland St., N.E., Atlanta, Ga. 30365, 404-347-1033.
