Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plans (SPCC)
The Federal Water Pollution Control Act (FWPCA) of 1972, commonly known as the Clean Water Act (CWA), is the principal federal statute for protecting navigable waters, adjoining shorelines, and the waters of the contiguous zone from pollution.
The EPA requires certain facilities to prepare, amend, and implement Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans.
The SPCC plan must include the following:
- Tank/container storage capacity and oil type
- Secondary containment systems
- Tank integrity testing and inspection procedures
