Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan


CAS & Associates, LLC (CAS) prepares Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plans throughout the beautiful state of Idaho.

An SPCC Applies to a Facility that:

Stores, transfers, uses or consumes oil or oil products, such as diesel

fuel, gasoline, lube oil, hydraulic oil, adjuvant oil, crop oil, vegetable

oil or animal fat; and stores more than 1,320 U.S. gallons in a total of

all aboveground containers.

Only count containers with 55 gallons or greater storage capacity or  

more than 42,000 gallons in completely buried containers; and could

reasonably be expected to discharge oil to navigable waters of the

U.S. or adjoining shorelines, such as lakes, rivers, and streams.

An SPPC is performed to determine if the facility could reasonably discharge oil into or upon navigable waters or adjoining shorelines. You can determine this by considering the geography and location of your facility relative to nearby navigable waters (such as lakes, rivers, streams, creeks, and other waterways) or adjoining shorelines. 

Also, you may want to consider whether precipitation runoff could

transport oil into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines. You may

not take into account manmade features such as:

  • Dikes,

  • Miscellaneous equipment,

  • Other structures that might prevent, contain, hinder, or restrain 

       the flow of oil.


Assume these manmade features are not present when making your determination. If you consider the applicable factors described above and determine a spill can reasonably flow to a waterway, navigable water, or adjoining shorelines, then you must comply with the SPCC rule.
