1. Maintenance of complete record of all spills or releases, federally reportable or not,
occurring at the facility. The spills occurring during the past 12 months will be identified and
listed together with corrective actions taken in each case. Specific plans implemented to prevent
recurrences in each case will also be listed.
2. Predictions of the direction of flow, rate, and maximum quantities of oil or hazardous
substances that might be spilled or released for each storage location or handling site.
3. Containment provisions and diversion structures or equipment in place or planned for use
to prevent the discharge from reaching surface waters or other sensitive resources. Preventive
systems may include dikes, berms, curbs, gutters or other drainage systems, booms, diversion or
retention ponds, or absorbent materials.
4. Conformance to EPA guidelines published in Title 40 CFR pertaining, where applicable, to
drainage, bulk storage tanks, transfer operations, pumping, in-plant processes such as
recoupment, or tank car or truck loading and unloading.
5. Regular SPCC inspections must be conducted. Signed records of inspections must be
retained as part of the SPCC plan for 3 years.
6. Security procedures and precautions.
7. Requirements for personnel training and spill prevention procedures briefings.
8. Any of the following information that can be developed separately or included in the above
a. Identification of populations at risk. In addition to considering nearby civilian population
centers, consideration will be given to onbase populations in administrative offices, family
b. Identification of environmentally sensitive areas, probable need for waterfowl
conservation efforts, and the presence of endangered species and other protected resources.
c. Consideration of local geography, hydrology, and climate.
d. Most probable locations for pollution incidents.
B. SPCC plans must be updated every 3 years and approved by a registered professional
engineer. In addition, the SPCC plan must be amended and recertified whenever there is a
change to a facility that would effect the facility's potential for an oil or hazardous substance spill
(e.g., a new tank is installed, berms are modified, etc.).
