The US EPA, under the authority of the Oil Pollution Act (OPA), requires facilities that have aboveground storage capacity of more than 1,320 gallons or underground storage capacity of 42,000 gallons of oil and/or petroleum products (including vegetable oils and fats) to prepare and implement a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan. The SPCC Plan documents the oil storage capacities at your facility, where spills would discharge, what physical controls are in place to prevent a discharge, and what procedures the facility has to respond to an oil spill. SPCC plans for moderate to large facilities (those with capacities greater than 10,000 gallons) must be prepared by a licensed professional engineer, and all SPCC Plans must be reviewed every 5 years, or whenever there is a change in the facility design, construction, operation, or maintenance that affects its potential for a spill.
CTI can assist in the development, preparation, and implementation of an effective Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan for you facility, including providing engineering of secondary containment systems. Along with the development of an SPCC plan, we can provide annually required SPCC training and conduct spill drills for your employees.
