Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (PPC / SPCC)

Skelly and Loy is experienced in the preparation of SPCC (Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures) and PPC (Preparedness, Prevention, and Contingency) Plans. The U.S. EPA mandates the development and implementation of an SPCC Plan for any facility storing more than 1,320 gallons of oil in aboveground storage tanks or more than 42,000 gallons of oil in underground storage tanks. The PA DEP requires a PPC Plan for road spreading operations, oil and gas wells, and brine disposal wells. A PPC Plan is also required under the GP-104, General NPDES Permit for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Mining Activities. The purpose of each plan is to protect waters by ensuring that accidental spills of pollutants are responded to promptly and appropriately. Skelly and Loy conducts site visits in order to inventory the volumes of materials in storage at the facility, develops a site plan showing locations of materials stored, analyzes the direction of flow of potential spills, and verifies or recommends secondary containment measures to minimize the impact of a spill. Skelly and Loy will develop a list of employees at the facility who will consist of the emergency team to ensure appropriate internal communication in the event of an emergency. In addition, Skelly and Loy creates an emergency list of external communication that includes local police and hospitals as well as any downstream municipalities that may be impacted by a spill. These plans are reviewed on a regular basis and revised when necessary.
