Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure

A top priority of the EPA is to get facilities where they can prevent, prepare for, and respond to oil spills that occur in and around inland waters of the United States.

IMG_1420The EPA is the overseeing agency for oil spills occurring on land that discharges into or in inland waters. If there is a spill in coastal waters and deepwater ports, then the US Coast Guard is the supervising agency.

There are 2 parts to the EPA’s oil spill prevention program that include the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) and the Facility Response Plan (FRP) rules. The SPCC rule assists facilities in the safe movement, usage, and disposal of oils that could discharge into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines. The FRP rule requires applicable facilities to submit a plan of action and preparation of how they would respond to a worst case oil discharge or threat of a discharge.

Our staff is poised to help your facility get into compliance with the required SPCC plan and inspection. We help you complete your reports and notices as well as offer consulting advice on better management practices.
