The Missouri Department of Natural Resources and local responding agencies may have legal authority to recover costs associated with responding to hazardous substance emergencies. The department's Hazardous Substances Emergency Response, Cost Recovery Information Technical Bulletin describes the state statute, Spill Bill RSMo Sec 260.546, for cost recovery and provides a recommended procedure to recover costs incurred during a hazardous substance emergency.
