Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures

SPCC Federal Requirements1The Federal Clean Water Act specifies the requirements for SPCC PlansThe Code of Federal Regulations 40 CFR 112 details requirements of the SPCC PlanThe SPCC regulations establish procedures, methods, and equipment needed to prevent oil discharges into waters of the United StatesSPCC Federal Requirements2A facility is required to have a SPCC Plan if it has:Total above ground oil storage of more than 1,320 gallons; OR Total below ground oil storage of more than 42,000 gallons; ANDThere is the potential for oil to reach streams or other water bodiesMarquette University meets these requirements and therefore is required to have a SPCC PlanSPCC Federal Requirements3Marquette University SPCC Plan4 The Marquette University SPCC Plan is kept on file at the Environmental Health & Safety Office located in Zilber Hall, Suite 212The document was prepared and certified by a Registered Professional Engineer and is approved by upper management of Marquette UniversityMarquette University SPCC Plan5The Marquette University SPCC Plan includes:Description of oil storage locationsDescription of secondary containment for oil storageLocations of spill clean-up and containment materialsMaps or other information to indicate where a release will migrateSpill history, potential spill sources, and spill prevention techniquesSpill contingency plan Other applicable guidelinesMarquette University SPCC Plan6Training Requirements forSpill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC)40 CFR Part 112Marquette University

7To familiarize employees with the written SPCC PlanTo help employees identify oil storage locations and loading proceduresTo assist in identifying spill pathwaysTo provide a discussion of spill prevention proceduresTo familiarize the employee with appropriate spill response procedures and use of spill response equipment.Goals of SPCC Training8All petroleum based oils.Fuel Oil, Gasoline, Hydraulic Fluid, Motor Oil, etc.Animal fats and oils.Fish and marine mammal oilsVegetable oilsAll the above oils mixed with wastesNever mix used oil with other wastesTypes of Oil Which May Be Regulated Under the SPCC9Oil Storage at Marquette University includes;Aboveground Storage Tanks (ATS)Hydraulic Elevator Systems and ReservoirsWaste Oil Collection StationsWaste Cooking Oil55 Gallon Drums in various locations

15Operating Procedures implemented to prevent oil spills.Examples: Regular inspections, SPCC On-Site Coordinator observing tank filling procedures.Control Measures installed to prevent oil from reaching navigable waters.Example: Secondary containment.Countermeasures to contain, cleanup, and mitigate the effects of an oil spill.Examples: Cleanup and spill equipment availability on site, available list of contacts and phone numbers for employee use during spills.Main Elements of the SPCC Plan16Spill PreventionInstallation of proper equipment, repair of malfunctioning systems, inspections, and good fueling and handling practicesSpill ControlMonitoring of leak detection, proper reporting, inspection of containment and piping systems.Spill CountermeasuresQuick, proper, and safe response to spills.SPCC Program Goals17In some areas, oil can enter the Navigable Waters or adjoining shorelines by:Direct spillage into a storm drain.

Never allow oil to drain into an open drain or into a ditch or waterway.

Oil containing equipment (i.e. a vehicle) is never to be rinsed or washed near a storm drain or waterway.Potential Spill Pathways18Damage to or accidental release from oil delivery equipment during loading or unloading of oil at fill ports of storage tanks.Catastrophic Tank FailureFuel tanker failure during deliveryMotor vehicle accident involving oil delivery equipment.Spill Scenarios (Large Release)19Small overfill at fill port of fuel tanks.Spillage of oil during transfer to or from drums and tanks.Leaking and or failure of pipes and pumps.Leaking and or failure of drums.Spill Scenarios (Small Release)20Routine InspectionsOur site specific SPCC plan includes the frequency schedule and checklist necessary for proper inspection. Ensure that necessary maintenance and repairs are completed as scheduled and recorded.SPCC specific inspections are conducted on a Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, and Annually basis as outlined in the Periodic Inspection Checklist.Inspection records must be kept for a minimum of three yearsSpill Prevention21Definition of proper containmentAll bulk storage containers of oil must be located in containment sufficient for the entire capacity of the largest container and sufficient have sufficient freeboard to contain an additional 10% volume.Secondary containment must be impervious materialSecondary containment is NOT required for Qualified Oil-Filled Operational Equipment such as transformers or electrical switches currently in use.Secondary Containment22Routine InspectionCan be performed by any SPCC On-site Coordinator.Check for indication of oil leaks on floors, pallets, dikes, retaining walls, and berms.Water must be able to drain out ONLY if there is no noticeable sheen.Refer to your site specific SPCC plan for specific details regarding your sites secondary containment inspection.Secondary Containment23Discovery of ReleaseExtinguish or remove any source of ignition.Identify the material and its point of release.Attempt to stop the release at its source if it is safe to do so.Contain material to prevent release into the environmentInitiate the spill reporting procedure as specified in your site specific SPCC plan Recover or clean up spilled materialDecontaminate tools and equipmentArrange for disposal of waste materials through EH&S EH&S is responsible for reporting to outside agencies.Spill Response24 For large spills that cant be controlled by in-house personnel and materials contact:

Veolia Environmental Services EMERGENCY RESPONSE 1-800-688-4005

Spill Response25Documentation Public Safety 8-1911 should be notified of all spills. Public Safety will be responsible writing spill reports based on information provided by the SPCC On-Site Coordinator detailing the following information:Date, time, and duration of releaseType of incidentMaterial involvedVolume of material involvedSPCC Plan DiscrepanciesActions taken to avoid future incidentsAll spill reports must be sent to EH&SSpill Reporting26A Spill Report will be completed by Public Safety, reviewed with affected parties, and filed with EH&S.Be sure to include information on:How to prevent another occurrenceEffectiveness of the responseRemember to restock your spill kit with any used items and/or add items that may be useful in the future if warranted.
