PE may use an agent the Plan
PE must review the agent’s work
PE Certification statement more specific
PE not required for non-technical amendments
State laws may preclude a PE not registered in the state from certifying
Familiar with requirements of SPCC rule
He or his agent have visited and examined the facility.
The Plan has been prepared in accordance with good engineering practice including consideration of applicable industry standards.
Procedures for required inspections and testing have been established.
The Plan is adequate for the facilityPE Certification
If fencing is impractical, explain. Provide equivalent environmental protection
Plan must be reviewed at least once every 5 years
Upon review if changes have occurred which effect plan, plan must be amended within 6 months of reviewSecurity/Plan Updates
Problems Today facilities
Converting USTs to ASTs facilities
Greater oil storage capacity
Greater number of ASTs
Greater annual throughput
= Higher Risk of Spills
Complying with SPCC regulations
Reduces number of spills, spill volume, and amount of oil migrating offsiteThe Issues
Leaking Dispenser Piping
Factory Built Emergency Vents
Clock Face Gauge
Secondary Containment Valves
FRP (OPA-90) facilities
Conduct over water transfers of oil and have a capacity of 42,000 gallons or greater
Total oil storage capacity of one million gallons or more
Inadequate secondary containment
Could impact fish, wildlife or sensitive environments
Could shut down drinking water intakes
Reportable spill greater than 10,000 gallons within the past 5 years40 CFR § 112.20 Covers
What is a Complex? facilities
Some facilities must meet the requirements of two or more federal agencies, because they engage in activities that fall under the jurisdiction of those agencies.
Who is Responsible for Regulating?
EPA is responsible for non-transportation- related facilities located landward of the
The Minerals Management Service of the Department of the Interior handles offshore non-transportation-related facilities located seaward of the coastline, including certain pipelines.
The USCG under DOT is responsible for deepwater ports and transportation-related facilities located landward of the coastline.Regulatory Requirements at a Complex

Major components of the SWPPP are:
Pollution prevention team;
Description of potential pollutant sources;
Measures and controls for stormwater management; and
Comprehensive site compliance evaluation.
