2.  A description of af agronomy princeton location facility and the regulated substance handled: 
     The primary purpose of this facility is storage of fertilizers for sale to the agricultural sector.  Anhydrous Ammonia is received, stored and distributed for both direct application and for blending into mixed grade fertilizers for sale to farmers.  Access to the site is restricted to authorized facility employees, authorized management personnel and authorized contractors. 
3.  The worst case scenerio: 
    We used rmp comp to determine the worst case scenerio release at our facilit 
y.  Failure of our largest storage tank when filled to the greatest amount would have off site consequences.  The alternative case scenerio is based on the most likely incident to occur, which is a break in a transfer hose.  Excess check flow valves and manual shut off valves will help control release in the alternative scenerio.
