SPCCOn October 13, 2011 EPA extended the deadline for farms and ranches to have a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) implemented from November 10, 2011 to May 10, 2013.  Rule of course is subject to no adverse comments after publication in the public register.

This rule affects all operations with greater than 1,320 gal above ground storage in 55 gal or larger vessels, or greater than 42,000 gal buried tanks.  Facilities with tanks smaller than 5,000 gal and less than 10,000 gal total storage may “self-certify” their plan.  Larger storage facilities will need and engineered plan.  Feel free to contact THEngineering for a complete engineered plan or for direction on a self-certified plan.
