Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plans protect navigable waters and are required under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 which modified the Clean Water Act (CWA) for facilities with greater than 1320 gallons of petroleum onsite with few exemptions. Plans articulate site specific attributes, drains, discharge and spill potential.
As dictated in 40 CFR part 112, the US EPA Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) rule is to help facilities prevent a discharge of oil into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines.
