Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures:  Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Lake Michigan Inner Harbor (south end) Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Rule:  Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Rule It is the oil pollution prevention regulation promulgated under the authority of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (Clean Water Act) The rule addresses requirements for Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) plans What is the SPCC Plan ? :  What is the SPCC Plan ? SPCC is required by EPA if a facility can “reasonably be expected to discharge harmful amounts of oil into navigable waters of the United States or adjoining shorelines” What Kinds of Oil are Included?:  What Kinds of Oil are Included? Under the SPCC regulations, oil is defined as "oil of any kind or in any form including, but not limited to, petroleum, fuel oil, sludge, oil refuse and oil mixed with wastes other than dredged spoil and oily mixtures." This also includes non-petroleum oils, animal and vegetable oils. Slide5:  Excerpt from EPA document entitled “Understanding Oil Spills and Oil Spill Response” Why Does UWM Need an SPCC Plan?:  Why Does UWM Need an SPCC Plan? Because we meet the following criteria outlined in the regulations: We have aggregate aboveground oil storage capacity of more than 1,320 gallons; and Oil can be reasonably expected to enter into navigable waters via floor drains and/or directly into storm water catchment basins SPCC Plan Certification and Review:  SPCC Plan Certification and Review The SPCC Plan must be reviewed and certified by a professional engineer (PE) to be in accordance with good engineering practices, including the consideration of the applicable industry standards and the requirements outlined in 40 CFR 112 The plan must be reviewed and re-certified by a registered PE at least once every five years Any technical amendments to the SPCC plan will require the certification of a PE Where is Oil Stored on Campus?:  Where is Oil Stored on Campus? Aboveground tanks Underground tanks Elevator hydraulic systems Electrical step-down transformers Electrical selector switches Waste cooking oil drums Motor Pool waste oil facility Bulk laboratory oil drums Oil storage at UWM includes the following: Where is Oil Stored on Campus?:  Where is Oil Stored on Campus?

Hydraulic Elevator Pit Where is Oil Stored on Campus?:  Where is Oil Stored on Campus? USTs at Power Plant Goals of Training:  Goals of Training Familiarize employees with the written SPCC Plan Identify oil storage locations and loading procedures Identify spill pathways Discuss spill prevention procedures Familiarize employees with appropriate spill response procedures and use of response equipment Who Must be Informed About the SPCC Plan?:  Who Must be Informed About the SPCC Plan? Any employee involved in oil handling, transfer, storage, spill response or maintenance of oil equipment SPCC Training Requirements:  SPCC Training Requirements Training is provided at least annually to inform personnel involved in oil storage or maintenance of tanks about proper actions to take in the event of a spill Training updates will be conducted whenever a significant change has been made to any oil storage (e.g., new tank installation) Training will also be conducted whenever a new employee is assigned to oil handling, maintenance duties or spill response Potential Spill Pathways:  Potential Spill Pathways Oil can enter “navigable waters” via: Direct spillage into combined sewer catchment basins and/or Spillage into a floor drain/roof drain or other void/conduit that discharges into the combined sewer Possible Spill Scenarios:  Possible Spill Scenarios Large Release Potential: High Probability: Damage to or release from oil delivery equipment during unloading at fill ports Low Probability Complete tank failure Catastrophic Fuel Tanker failure during delivery Possible Spill Scenarios:  Possible Spill Scenarios Small Release Potential High probability: Minor overfill at fill port Spillage of oils during transfer from drums/containers Low probability: Leaking/failure of piping and pumps…if proper inspection & maintenance schedule is followed Leaking/failure of drums…if proper inspection & maintenance schedule is followed SPCC Program Goals:  SPCC Program Goals SPILL PREVENTION Achieved through installation of required equipment, timely repair of malfunctioning systems, regular inspections and good oil handling/fueling practices SPILL CONTROL Achieved through monitoring of leak detection systems and proper reporting, and ensuring containment systems are functional SPILL COUNTERMEASURES Achieved through quick spill response activities Spill Prevention – Inspections:  Spill Prevention – Inspections Document monthly AST inspections with log sheet (keep records for at least three years) Ensure necessary maintenance and repairs to equipment are completed as scheduled Periodically review monthly inspection forms to follow-up on corrective actions Report all leaks and unusual observations to EHSRM or Physical Plant supervisors before they become problems Tank Truck Drivers:  Tank Truck Drivers Remain with the vehicle at all times while loading Drain lines to the storage tank and close the drain valves before disconnecting & ensure appropriate containment device is located under connections Tank truck drivers shall: Tank Truck Drivers:  Tank Truck Drivers Inspect vehicle before departure to ensure all lines have been disconnected & all drains/vents are closed Immediately report any leakage or spillage, including quantity, to … Tank truck drivers shall: Spill Prevention – Alarms:  Spill Prevention – Alarms Monitor activity of leak detection/overfill protection systems and respond immediately to alarms: Do not assume alarms are false even if repeatedly activated Do not leave monitoring station unsupervised Perform regularly scheduled tests on monitoring systems to ensure that they are operational Spill Prevention – Containment:  Spill Prevention – Containment Ensure all Spill Containment structures are in place and operational: Oil drums/containers are stored on “spill pallets” or other secondary containment Check for indication of oil leaks on floors, spill pallets, dikes, retaining walls and berms Report all spills and unusual observations to EHSRM or Physical Plant Services before they become problems Secondary Containment:  Secondary Containment Secondary containment must be sufficiently impervious to contain oil Cinder block and other similar materials must be tested to determine porosity Berms or dikes must have oil holding capacity calculations done and these must be kept on record as long as they are in use Spill Response – Discovery of Release:  Spill Response – Discovery of Release Extinguish any source of ignition Identify the material released Attempt to stop the release at its source.  Ensure that no danger to human health exists first Initiate spill notification and reporting procedures (call x…) Reference Material Safety Data Sheet Spill Response:  Spill Response Use link below to view UWM’s: “Spill Reporting Procedures” Spill Response – Containment & Follow-up:  Spill Response – Containment & Follow-up Contain the material released into the environment Recover or clean up the material spilled Clean up the spill area Decontaminate tools and equipment Arrange for proper disposal of waste materials Notifications and reports to outside agencies (SPCC Coordinators) Review SPCC Plan to evaluate/improve response Spill Response Supplies:  Spill Response Supplies The oil spill response supplies are located at: They may include: Speedy dri Sorbent booms/pads Spill mats for covering floor and storm drains Protective gloves/suits and safety glasses/goggles Caution tape for protecting the spill area Shovels and drums for collection of materials What is a “Release to the Environment”?:  What is a “Release to the Environment”? Wisconsin Emergency Management defines a “release to the environment” as follows: Any amount of oil that produces a sheen on water and/or threatens navigable waters, including drainage ditches One gallon or more of a flammable liquid (such as gasoline) onto unpaved ground Five gallons or more of a combustible liquids (such as diesel fuel or mineral oil) onto unpaved ground A discharge of a federally listed substance in excess of its reportable quantity Spill Reporting & Documentation:  Spill Reporting & Documentation The SPCC Coordinators will prepare a report for any large spill or spill that impacts public health, safety or the environment.  Reports must include: Date, time and duration of release Type of incident Materials involved Extent of injuries Assessment of potential hazards Disposition of recovered materials SPCC Plan discrepancies Steps to prevent similar incidents Closing Out a Spill:  Closing Out a Spill A spill report will be completed by the SPCC Coordinator, reviewed with the affected parties, signed and filed with EHSRM Important: Discuss what can and should be done to prevent another occurrence Was the response quick and effective?  Should anything be done to enhance the response system? Very Important! Restock spill kits with replacement items and additional items if necessary Spill Contact Information:  Spill Contact Information External Contacts State Federal Spill Contact Information:  Spill Contact Information External Contacts Chemical Information: CHEMTREC: (800) 424-9300 Hazardous Material Spill Control Contractors: ONYX Tank Inspections:  Tank Inspections All tanks and associated equipment must be inspected for malfunctions, deteriorations or operator errors that could lead to a spill. They must be conducted by someone familiar with the tank system They must be done often enough to identify problems in time to correct them before a spill occurs An inspection procedure must be developed A written record of inspections must be kept on file Records must be retained for a minimum of one year. Other Requirements:  Other Requirements Tank Testing A tank testing program must be initiated for all oil storage tanks The frequency is dependent on the manufacturer’s recommendation for the specific tank Buried Piping All buried piping installed or replaced after 8/16/02 must have protective wrapping, coating and/or cathodic protection Exam:  Exam Click on URL below to take exam http://www.uwm.edu/Dept/EHSRM/EHS/SPCC/SPCC_Exam.html
