Federal regulations require the preparation and implementation of a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) plan for facilities that store petroleum products likely to be discharged into surface or groundwater in the event of a release. ESI has prepared SPCC plans for many facilities and has assisted clients in redesigning facilities and training staff to minimize the likelihood of a costly petroleum or chemical release. Specific SPCC projects include:
- SPCC plan at major urban medical facility (1.5 million square feet with 37 aboveground and underground storage tanks), including the preparation of standard operating procedures for petroleum products handling, spill response procedures and facility modification for spill prevention.
- SPCC Plans, as well as Installation Spill Contingency Plans, for four Army National Guard facilities. Assessed each facility's total petroleum bulk storage and hazardous materials inventories and determined site compliance. Provided guidance on necessary modifications and provided protocols for petroleum and hazardous materials management and spill response procedures.
- Indoor SPCC plans for multi-site medical facility in New York City Watershed. Specified recommended spill containment, proposed emergency response activities, and secured federal and local agency approvals.
