Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasures (SPCC) Plans

Timely Spill Response

CORE has prepared numerous Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plans for facilities of various sizes for compliance with state and federal guidelines. The purpose of an SPCC Plan is to describe the measures implemented by a site owner to prevent oil discharges and to prepare plan users for response to spills in a safe, effective, and timely manner.

CORE provides an on-site inspection to identity and document all current Petroleum Bulk Storage Tanks and Spill Engineering Controls. From this information, a qualified professional will work with you to deliver a high quality SPCC Plan custom to your site's needs.

Is my facility covered by SPCC?

Stores more than 1,320 U.S. gallons in total of all aboveground containers (only count containers with 55 gallons or greater storage capacity) or more than 42,000 gallons in completely buried containers; and

Could reasonably be expected to discharge oil to navigable waters of the U.S. or adjoining shorelines, such as lakes, rivers and streams.
