If your facility stores more than 1,320 gallons of oil aboveground and in containers 55-gallons or larger, you are required to have an SPCC Plan. Additionally, if your facility has the ability to cause substantial harm if a release of oil were to occur a Facility Response Plan (FRP) may be needed. Each SPCC/FRP Plan is tailored to meet the specific needs of the facility and address the potential risk each facility has to release oil into surface water bodies according to standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). SPCC/FRP Plans are not contingency plans that focus solely on what to do following a spill – rather they assure each facility has the processes in place to prevent a spill from impacting streams, lakes, rivers, ponds, oceans and other surface water bodies.

The EPA has established a date of November 10, 2011 when all facilities must be compliant with the newly promulgated SPCC requirements. If you have questions or are unsure whether your facility is compliant, contact us and set up a free consultation.
