    1. INTRODUCTION This Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan (Plan) is required for the University of California San Diego (UC San Diego) because the volume of aboveground oil storage at the campus is greater than the applicability threshold under the federal SPCC regulations (40 CFR 112). A SPCC Plan is required for facilities which have an aggregate aboveground storage capacity of oil greater than 1,320 gallons in containers greater than 55-gallons in capacity. As of the preparation date of this SPCC Plan, UC San Diego’s aboveground oil storage capacity is approximately 200,000 gallons. UC San Diego operates underground storage tanks (USTs) containing petroleum products, however, the USTs are subject to the technical requirements of 40 CFR, Part 280, as well as the state analogue to these federal regulations. Consequently, the USTs are exempt from SPCC plan requirements except for identification of their locations on the Site Plan. This SPCC Plan has been prepared in accordance with good engineering practices. This SPCC Plan has the full approval of UC San Diego management to commit the necessary resources for implementation. 1.1 Plan Organization This SPCC Plan is divided into the following five sections: Introduction Section 1 presents the administrative elements of the SPCC Plan including the Plan’s overall conformance with State and Federal SPCC regulations, where the Plan is located, who maintains control over the Plan, the process and requirements for updating/modifying the Plan, and certifications. Campus Background Section 2 provides a physical description of UC San Diego’s’ campus and its oil storage locations, in- place containment measures, and potential release scenarios. Section 2 provides an overview of UC San Diego’s’ campus, discusses oil storage/handling locations and practices, and provides details about where and how a release would impact the Site. The Section specifically discusses oil storage inventory, active and passive spill containment, facility drainage, release scenarios, and historical spill events. Discharge Prevention Section 3 begins the active portion of this SPCC Plan. This section discusses requirements for inspections, integrity testing, best management practices, personnel training, plan amendment, plan review, and recordkeeping. These are actions that must be performed by UC San Diego personnel on a continual basis to prevent oil discharges from occurring. Discharge Response Section 4 describes the response actions and activities that will lead UC San Diego personnel in the event oil is discharged to the environment. A discussion of discharge event sizes, discharge notification procedures, and spill response activities are provided. Discharge Reporting Section 5 describes the verbal and written requirements associated with a discharge event. Federal and State reporting is discussed as well as recordkeeping requirements.

    1.2 Plan Applicability This SPCC Plan was written specifically for UC San Diego’s main campus located on Gilman Drive, in La Jolla, California (Figure 1). The campus is generally bounded by Genesee Ave. to the north, Torrey Pines Road and La Jolla Village Drive to the south, Regents Road to the east, and Torrey Pines Road and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Interstate Highway 5 (I-5) passes through the eastern portion of the campus, separating the main campus from the UC San Diego Medical Center and Mesa Housing. The Scripps Institute of Oceanography (SIO), located to the southwest of the main campus, is included as part of the main campus for purposes of this SPCC Plan. 1.3 SPCC Plan/Program Administration The Campus SPCC Coordinator will maintain control over the SPCC Plan/SPCC Program and will engage UC San Diego Departments: Resource Management & Planning (RMP), Housing, Dining & Hospitality (HDH), UC Health Systems, and Student Affairs (SA) for management of containers and oil handling activities, as necessary. 1.3.1 Plan Coordinators and Emergency Contacts

    The Campus SPCC Coordinator is: Name: Tod Ferguson Title: Hazardous Materials Business Plan Manager 9500 Gilman Drive #0089 La Jolla, CA 92093-0089 Office Phone: 858.534.9745 Office Fax: 858.534-1564 The Campus SPCC Coordinator is responsible for overall administration of this SPCC Plan, including amendments, certifications, reporting, record-keeping, education, and spill response. In addition, the Campus SPCC Coordinator is responsible for coordinating inspections and maintaining records of inspections and spill incidents.

    1.3.2 Plan Amendments

    This SPCC Plan must be amended whenever there is a change in campus design, construction, operation or maintenance which materially affects the campus’ potential for the discharge of oil into or upon the navigable waters of the United States or adjoining shorelines. Such changes may include, but are not limited to:  Addition to or reduction of oil storage capacity;  Types of oil materials stored, used or generated;  Modifications to containment areas;  Drainage system modifications; and  Changes in SPCC Plan coordination and/or emergency contact numbers. A registered Professional Engineer (P.E.) must certify all non-administrative amendments to the SPCC Plan.

    1.3.3 Review and Re-certification of Plan

    Regardless of whether changes have occurred at the campus, this SPCC Plan must also be reviewed and evaluated at least once every five years. If the review identifies an increased potential for a release, the SPCC Plan will be amended within six months to include more effective prevention and control technology if such technology will significantly reduce the likelihood of a spill event at the campus, as long as such technology has been field-proven at the time of the review. The SPCC Plan may be periodically amended to reflect changes in the campus. Any technical amendments to the SPCC Plan must be re-certified by a P.E. The five-year SPCC Plan review and evaluation will be documented by signing a statement as to whether the Plan will be amended
