Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plans
Pyramid offers Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) assistance in compliance consulting with 40 CFR 112 SPCC Plans.
Since 1973, the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has used SPCC plans as a cornerstone of its strategy to prevent oil spills from reaching our nation’s waters.
Aboveground Storage Tanks
Owners and operators of certain Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs) must have and implement an SPCC plan. This plan assures that a spill from an AST is contained and countermeasures are established to prevent an oil spill that could reach navigable waters. A spill contingency plan is also required as part of the SPCC plan if a facility is unable to provide secondary containment.
An SPCC plan is unique to each facility, describing the particular configuration of the site’s ASTs as well as the site’s Underground Storage Tanks (USTs). All SPCC plans list whether or not a site complies with the general requirements under 40 CFR 112.
