Spill Prevention and Control Planning

Petro_Odor_YonkersMunicipal and industrial facilities must comply with federal, state and local environmental spill prevention control and reporting requirements.

D&B’s spill prevention and control planning services typically commence with a complete facility overview. Once process operations, product storage capacities and/or process-specific waste streams are better understood, D&B’s spill prevention team conducts applicability determinations to identify if a media-specific spill prevention planning document is required by statute or regulation.

Major federal/state environmental statutes are identified along with corresponding spill prevention planning documents, including:

  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
    • Contingency Plans
    • Preparedness and Prevention Plans
  • Clean Water Act (CWA)
    • Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plans
  • Oil Pollution Act and U.S. Coast Guard Statutes
    • Vessel Response Plans
    • Facility Response Plans
    • Mobile Facility Response Plans
    • Integrated Contingency Plans
  • Clean Air Act Amendments
    • Risk Management Plans
  • Hazardous Substances Bulk Storage Law
    • Chemical Bulk Storage Spill Prevention Reports
  • Spill Compensation and Control Act
    • Discharge Prevention, Containment and Countermeasure Plans
    • Discharge Cleanup and Removal Plans

In instances where there is no specific statutory or regulatory requirement applicable in connection with the development of a particular spill prevention and control plan, a Best Management Practice (BMP) Plan may be utilized. In the case of a BMP, D&B’s spill prevention team assists clients in improving housekeeping and operational procedures to develop a “common sense” approach to eliminating the potential for releases and future liabilities.
