Guidance on Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans Reply

There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There’s a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, a hole.
Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry…

Well you can look up the rest of the poem, but what if that bucket is a tank and it’s leaking oil…now what do you do?  Hopefully, this won’t happen to you, as it did in Dorchester, Massachusetts recently, but you may be asking yourself a few questions right now:

  • Is there something I should be doing to prevent a leak?
  • Is there a plan I should have in the event of a leak?
  • What should I do if my tank is actually leaking?

CAPACCIO can help you answer these questions.  Our staff of engineers has prepared numerous Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans which are required for sites with over 1,320 gallons of aboveground oil storage. For smaller facilities, we can conduct inspections of oil storage tanks to determine their risk of failure.  In the unfortunate event of a spill, our on-call Licensed Site Professional (LSP) is available 24/7 to answer your questions and assist with reporting and clean-up requirements.   

If you would like more information on SPCC Plans and whether your facility is required to have one, click here. For general information regarding SPCC Plans and tank inspections call Josh Fawson at 508.970.0033 ext. 120.  For LSP services, call Dawn Horter at 508.970.0033 ext. 118.
