Slide 1

Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasures (SPCC) and Fuel Management Presented by Emily Daigneau, PRIZIM Inc., at the CSHEMA-PRIZIM Regional EH&S Seminar November 1, 2007, at University of Colorado Boulder

Slide 2

Agenda Why discuss fuel tanks? What are the necessities of overseeing fuel tanks? What are the necessities of a SPCC Plan? What are some Best Management Practices (BMPs) for fuel administration?

Slide 3

Why Fuel Storage? Complex administration prerequisites Potential for noteworthy damage – likely most critical spill hazard Potential for tidy up expenses and long haul obligation related with defilement A noteworthy spending thing Negative exposure

Slide 4

What are the Risks of Tanks? Spilling or decaying tanks Leaking or weakening funnels Problems with fuel containers Problems in fuel travel Problems emptying fuel What are you as of now doing to address these effects? How could these endeavors be moved forward?

Slide 5

How is Fuel Tank Management Regulated? Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) are directed under EPA's 40 CFR 280 and 281 Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs) might be controlled by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes, International Fire Code (IFC), and state or nearby controls Spills from tanks are managed under EPA's 40 CFR 112

Slide 6

UST Requirements Corrosion assurance Leak discovery for tank and lines Spill and stuff insurance Records Closure

Slide 7

AST Requirements AST codes rely on upon neighborhood and state necessities. A few nuts and bolts: Collision assurance (bollards) Proper venting Fencing or other security framework Overfill alert and programmed fuel stream stop Additional necessities exist for offices supporting powering operations over water

Slide 8

SPCC Plan Requirements Which offices are required to have a SPCC Plan? Offices that utilization or store oil (i.e., petroleum, fuel oil, creature oil, oil, pressure driven oil, vegetable oil) Non-transportation related offices (this implies you!) Potential to release into safe waters

Slide 9

SPCC Plan Requirements What are the amount edges that trigger SPCC Plan Requirements? Over-the-ground limit of more than 1,320 gallons Containers that are 55 lady or bigger get included OR Underground limit of more than 42,000 gallons Tanks secured under 40 CFR 280 or 281 (EPA UST controls) are rejected

Slide 10

SPCC Plan Requirements SPCC Plan Sections: Facility outline Oil spill forecasts Facility waste Facility assessments Site security Appropriate auxiliary control or diversionary structures Significant mischief assurance

Slide 11

SPCC Plan Requirements SPCC Plan Sections (kept) Loading/emptying necessities and systems for tank auto and tank trucks Personnel preparing and oil release counteractive action briefings Brittle crack assessments Bulk stockpiling holder consistence Transfer strategies and gear (counting channeling) Review like clockwork Professional Engineer affirmation

Slide 12

SPCC Regulation Update SPCC 2002 changed govern alterations must be actualized by October 31, 2007 Removes 660 lady compartment edge Exempts compartments littler than 55 lady Exempts tanks officially secured by 40 CFR 280 or 281

Slide 13

SPCC Regulation Update EPA finished to extra principles powerful February 26, 2007. Offices with under 10,000 lady limit and no reportable spills for a long time can self-guarantee SPCC Plan Eliminate assurance of impracticability prerequisite for auxiliary control of oil-filled operational hardware for offices with no reportable spills in most recent 10 years

Slide 14

Proposed Rules to SPCC Plan Regulations October 2007 Proposed Amendments: Exemptions for certain gear Clarity on the general optional regulation necessities Flexibility in the security prerequisites Flexibility in the utilization of industry principles to agree to  integrity testing necessities Additional adaptability in meeting the office graph prerequisites Clarification on the adaptability gave by the meaning of "office"

Slide 15

Proposed Rules to SPCC Plan Regulations To see the proposed rules, visit: www.epa.gov/oilspill/pdfs/fr101507.pdf Comments can be submitted online at www.regulations.gov Enter docket ID Number EPA-HQ-OPA-2007-0584 Comments due December 14, 2007

Slide 16

Energy Policy Act of 2005 Subtitle B a.k.a. Underground Storage Tank Compliance Act (USTCA) More continuous state assessments (at any rate once like clockwork) Certification for UST administrators Illegal fuel conveyances for resistant tanks Secondary regulation for tanks 1,000 ft from water framework or water well

Slide 17

What Should Campuses Do? Guarantee all tanks, funneling, and fuel containers are up to code EPA prerequisites (USTs) Fire security and designing necessities (ASTs) Ensure each tank has a technique for discharge location Ensure outsider testing Ensure appropriate UST/AST fuel framework upkeep Ensure SPCC Plan or comparable is set up Monitor all fuel conveyances
