    How much PCB oil can be spilled before reporting to the EPA?
    Your Answer: None of the above
    Correct Answer: More than 10 pounds

    Isn't the operative word in this test question "before"? Which would make the answer 10 lbs or less according to the EPA. I just wan to make sure I'm not going crazy before trying to report it.

    I just found this. There are different levels of reporting, but I think this is the one they used. I pulled this off the website.

    Title 40 CFR 761.125 (TSCA regulations):
    Notify the National Response Center (NRC) (800-424-8802) if a spill of 1 pound or more of PCBs occurs. Notify the EPA Regional Office, Office of Prevention, Pesticides, and Toxic Substances Branch, if: 1) any amount of PCBs contaminates surface waters, sewers, drinking water supplies, grazing land, or vegetable gardens; or 2) more than 10 pounds of PCBs are spilled. Reporting requirements are fully explained in Title 40 CFR 761.125, "Requirements for PCB Spill Cleanup."
