The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires any facilities with aggregate aboveground oil storage capacity greater than 1,320 gallons to have a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan. The SPCC plan’s purpose is to protect the nation’s waters from contamination that affects all life downstream of an oil-based spill. The regulations apply to all facilities that store oil-based products such as petroleum, fuel or even milk fat in 55-gallon or bigger containers that cumulatively equate to greater than 1,320 gallons of product.
Sites that may need SPCC plans include bulk-fueling stations, agricultural facilities, dairies and milk-production plants, airports and more. CGRS Environmental Services can develop full SPCC plans that include the initial site inspection, describe tank testing and inspection requirements, and a SPCC plan reviewed and certified by a professional engineer. Our inspections provide a complete assessment of current site equipment and associated spill-prevention measures and ensure they comply with the EPA’s current SPCC plan requirements.
