  • An estimate of the maximum amount of the chemical present at any time during the preceding calendar year and the average daily amount.
  • A brief description of how the chemical is stored.
  • The location of the chemical at the facility.
  • Whether the owner of the facility elects to withhold location information from disclosure to the public.
