Oil and water don’t mix; in fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has specific regulations to prevent oil release into navigable waters.

WSSI offers services to help our clients meet the environmental requirements set out by the EPA in its “SPCC Rule” by preparing Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) plans and the associated 5-year updates of these plans while providing annual training for oil-handling staff. These plans help inventory potential pollutant sources as well as outline containment and response measures needed should a release to waterways occur.

How do you know if you need one of these plans?

According to the EPA’s SPCC Rule, facility owners whose sites have containers of oil with a capacity of at least 55 gallons, in quantities that exceed a total combined capacity of 1,320 gallons, are required to prepare and maintain a plan, as well as train their employees on the plan.
