Free Workshop to Explain Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure Rule

In a free online workshop, EPA will provide detailed information about the current Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) requirements for above-ground storage tanks. The workshop will be held Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

The SPCC regulation is found at 40 CFR part 112. Facilities subject to the rule must prepare and implement a plan to prevent any discharge of oil into or upon navigable waters of the United States or adjoining shorelines. A facility subjected to the SPCC rule must meet three criteria: 1) It must be non-transportation related; 2) it must have an aggregate AST capacity greater than 1,320 gallons or a completely buried storage capacity greater than 42,000 gallons; and 3) there must be a reasonable expectation that a release of oil may enter surface water.

Although the workshop is free, advance registration is required so that EPA can contact you about the details of the broadcast location, follow-up contacts with EPA officials, and potential needs for certificates. The workshop will be offered via satellite at locations throughout Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Classroom location information, directions, and parking instructions will be sent with registration confirmation. Walk-ins are welcome, but preference will be given to pre-registered participants, EPA says. Some sites have limited seating, so register early.

For those who cannot attend one of the broadcast locations, the workshop is being Web-streamed. RealPlayer will be needed to view the event. The URL for the event will be provided upon registration. For additional information or to register for the workshop, visit http://www.kstate.tv/epa.
