When a facility has an above-ground oil/chemical storage capacity that is greater than 1,320 gallons or an underground oil/chemical storage capacity that is greater than 42,000 gallons (along with a reasonable expectation that a storage discharge could reach navigable waters), an SPCC (Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures) plan is required. The goal of an SPCC plan is to help prevent unwanted leaks and discharges of harmful substances from damaging our environment by breaching containment or reaching navigable waters.
For more information on whether or not your facility requires an SPCC plan, visit the official EPA website found here https://www.epa.gov. Under the circumstance that your facility requires an SPCC plan and you’re ready to implement, we can help with landscaping construction, dirt wall construction, cavity wall construction, excavation for underground tanks, or burm rehabilitation. Whether your SPCC plan calls for overfill prevention or even secondary containment for your storage, contact us to learn how we can implement your SPCC plan with our oilfield construction services.
