Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures Plan
Which facilities need a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan?
A facility is covered by the SPCC rule if it has an aggregate aboveground oil storage capacity greater than 1,320 U.S. gallons or a completely buried storage capacity greater than 42,000 U.S. gallons and there is a reasonable expectation of an oil discharge into or upon navigable waters of the U.S. or adjoining shorelines.

What are the required elements of a SPCC Plan?
  • Facility diagram and description of the facility
  • Oil discharge predictions
  • Appropriate secondary containment or diversionary structures
  • Facility drainage
  • Site security
  • Facility inspections
  • Requirements for bulk storage containers including inspections, overfill, and integrity testing requirements

Community Right to Know and Protection Act
In 1985, the Oregon Legislature passed the Oregon Community Right to Know (CR2K) and Protection Act. The purpose of this law is to provide first responders and the public with information about hazardous substances in their response areas and neighborhoods. The law directs the Office of State Fire Marshal to survey business and government facilities for information about the presence of hazardous substances and to collect information about incidents involving hazardous substances.
Facilities that provide all information required by Oregon CR2K reporting requirements are considered by EPA as complying with several sections of EPCRA, including notification to the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and local fire departments.

Do you have to submit a Hazardous Substance Information Survey to the State Fire Marshal?
The Hazardous Substance Information Survey is the form used by businesses and government entities in Oregon to comply with state and federal Community Right to Know requirements for the reporting of hazardous substances. Reportable quantities of hazardous substances that are used, stored, manufactured or disposed of at business and government sites in Oregon are required to be reported annually. Marinas with fuel stations should be submitting this report.
