Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures

The following is a link to the Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures Plan for the UTK Main Campus. The plan is commonly referred to as SPCC. If you require assistance with this plan please contact EHS.

About the Regulation

Originally published in 1973 under the authority of §311 of the Clean Water Act, the Oil Pollution Prevention regulation sets forth requirements for:

  • the prevention of,
  • preparedness for, and
  • response to oil discharges at specific non-transportation-related facilities.

The goal of this regulation is to prevent oil from reaching navigable waters and adjoining shorelines, and to contain discharges of oil. The regulation requires these facilities to develop and implement Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans and establishes procedures, methods, and equipment requirements (Subparts A, B, and C).
