Protecting the integrity of our navigable waterways and shorelines
The purpose of the Federal SPCC Rule is to help facilities prevent a discharge of oil into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines. This Rule is part of the USEPA oil spill prevention program and was published under the authority of Section 311(j)(1)(C) of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (Clean Water Act) in 1974. The Rule is found at Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 112. SPCC-regulated facilities are non-transportation-related, have underground oil storage capacity of more than 42,000 gallons and/or aboveground oil storage capacity of more than 1,320 gallons on site, and can reasonably be expected to discharge oil to navigable waters or adjoining shorelines in quantities that may be harmful.
