SPCC Plan

 

SPCC Plan Overview

The purpose of this Plan is to establish the procedures and equipment required to prevent the discharge of oil in quantities that violate applicable water quality standards, cause a sheen upon or discoloration of the surface of navigable waters or adjoining shorelines, or cause sludge or emulsion to be deposited beneath the surface of the water or upon adjoining shorelines. The Plan also establishes the activities required to mitigate such discharges (i.e. countermeasures) should they occur. The full text of the plan is available from the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) or the Facilities/EHS shared drive.
