This report develops a baseline inventory of rail hazardous commodities that originate in, terminate in, or pass through Region 8 (which includes the states of Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming). The inventory also includes a set of interregional tables that summarize hazardous rail commodity flows to and from each federal region. These tables were developed from a special version of the waybill database provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The most important uses of the inventory are in: 1. identifying the general commodities and the magnitudes of hazardous rail commodity flows within the region; 2. describing interregional commercial flows of hazardous materials; and 3. providing commodity flow information for use in general emergency response planning.
