Under EPA regulations, if you store more than 1,320 gallons of oil in drums 55 gallons and larger, or if you store more than 42,000 gallons of oil underground, you are required to have a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) in place.
This regulation, established in 1990 under the Oil Pollution Prevention Act, was designated to minimize the impact of oil and oil-derived substances on waters of the United States.
One of the main ways the SPCC rules help to prevent oil spills is by requiring SPCC plans. A SPCC plan is a detailed, facility-specific, written description of how a facility's operations meet the prevention measures outline in the Oil Pollution regulation.
"We currently use J. J. Keller's environmental consultants, US compliance. The entire staff there has been amazing to us. Every question we have; every permit we need. The time they spend with us at our facility has been fantastic. They not only do the heavy lifting for you, they teach you as they go. There is so much to know with EPA & rules/regs that it is comforting to know we have a team behind us to keep us compliant. I would highly recommend Seth & his group to anyone."— Valerie Corbin, Director of HR and EHS

A trained consultant will visit your facility to conduct an on-site inspection, which is required by the regulations. This will help identify any deficiencies and prepare the facility diagram.
When the inspection is complete, we will prepare a SPCC Plan in accordance with the regulations. As required, the plan will address tank/piping design and testing, site security, employee training, proper facility drainage, and secondary containment for tanks, containment for tanks, containers, and areas where oil in loaded/unloaded.
The SPCC Plan will be certified by a registered Professional Engineer (P.E.) to verify that it has been appropriately prepared and compiles with regulations.
All plans are based on a facility walkthrough and a detailed review of documentation. Site contracts are encouraged to participate in the process whenever possible. Upon completion of the project, each site will receive a bound copy of the plan.
