SPCC Plans

The EPA Says You Need A Spill Prevention Containment and Countermeasure Plan If...

paraphrased from the EPA's website


...Aggregate aboveground storage capacity is 1,320 U.S. gallons or less. Only containers with capacity of 55 U.S. gallons or greater are counted.




A) Container that is “permanently closed” as defined in §112.2;

B) The capacity of a “motive power container” as defined in §112.2;

C) The capacity of hot-mix asphalt or any hot-mix asphalt container;

D) The capacity of a container for heating oil used solely at a single-family residence;

E) The capacity of pesticide application equipment and related mix containers.

F) The capacity of any milk and milk product container and associated piping and appurtenances.


For Example, if you have a 1,000-gallon fuel storage tank and six empty 55-gallon drums on site, you would technically be subject to the SPCC mandate.  * There are lots of exemptions (especially for farmers) and requirements beyond this brief overview.
