Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan

Federal law requires facilities that manages or stores over 42,000 gallons of buried storage or over 1,320 gallons aboveground storage to develop and implement a SPCC plan. Only containers/equipment that are 55 gallons or greater are included in the total.

The SPCC Plan is a written commitment of everything University units will do to prevent and clean up oil/fuel spills to water. SPCC Plans contain standard operating procedures to protect drains, streams and land that collect storm runoff from our campus, as well as annual training requirements and tank inspections.

If you have any questions about the University SPCC plans, need copies of Standard Operating Procedures, have changes to your oil and fuel storage tanks, or need to register for training, please contact the Department of Environmental Compliance at 217-265-9828.
