Risk Management Plan - Executive Summary 
1.  The Facility Policy: 
     The owners, management, and employees of Monke Bros. Fertilizer, Nickerson Location, are committed to the prevention of any accidental releases of anhydrous ammonia. If an accidental release should occur, the facility is prepared to work with the local Fire Department, to mitigate any release and minimize the impact of the release to people and the environment. 
2.  Facility information: 
     The primary activity at the facility is the storage of fertilizer for sale to farmers. 
      Anhydrous ammonia is received, stored, and distributed for direct application for crop production nutrients. 
       The maximum quantity stored would be 64,000 pounds in our storage tank,  holding 15,000 gallons.  The maximum quantity handled would be the unloading of a rail car  holding approximately 150,000  
3.  the worst case release scenario and the alternative release scenario. 
a.  the worst-case release scenario would be the release of the total contents of a storage tank released as a gas over 10 minutes.  The maximum quantity released would be 64,000 pound, which represents the volume of the storage tank at 85 percent capacity as limited by design standards.  The distance to the endpoint (point of dispersion to 200 ppm) is 1.63 miles. 
b.  The alternative release scenario based on the most likely potential incident is a release from a break in a transfer hose.  The distance to the endpoint (point of dispersion to 200 ppm) is .83 miles. 
4.  The accidental release prevention program. 
      The facility has implemented the provisions of  "Safety Requirements for the Storage and Handling of Anhydrous Ammonia, k-61.1" and the standards of the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 29 CRF 1910.11, Storage and Handling of Anhydrous Ammonia. 
5.  The five
