Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plans
Do I need a SPCC plan? Depends... The Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) rule applies to owners or operators of facilities that drill, produce, gather, store, use, process, refine, transfer, distribute, or consume oil and oil products. Oil means oil of any kind or in any form, including, but not limited to: fats, oils, or greases of animal, fish, or marine mammal origin; vegetable oils, including oils from seeds, nuts, fruits, or kernels; and, other oils and greases, including petroleum, fuel oil, sludge, synthetic oils, mineral oils, oil refuse, or oil mixed with wastes other than dredged spoil.
An ESSG Professional Engineer (PE) will provide you an onsite assessment of your facility to identify:
Aggregate storage capacity greater than 1,320 gallons;
Completely buried storage capacity greater than 42,000 gallons; and
Could reasonably be expected to discharge oil in harmful quantities into navigable waters of the United States.
A Written Plan is completed in accordance with regulatory requirements along with:
Annual site visit/assessment/training;
Annual SPCC Review with reasonable changes if needed; and
5 year SPCC Review.
