Transcript of Rolling SPCC/SWPPP

SPCC & SWPPP
The best way to deal with a spill is prevent it from even happening.
What is a spill prevention control and countermeasures plan (SPCC)?
It is a plan that the US EPA requires Charter to have because we have a total above ground storage capacity of over 1,320 gallons of various types of oils.
Equipment failure and broken lines from trucks or a contractor's piece of equipment has caused small oil spills.
Multiple dates/locations
Requirements of the plan:
Monthly inspections of equipment

Containment & spill kits
The plan refers to all oil storage areas, oil based equipment, oil reservoirs, & transformers.

Potential volumes, secondary containment, and what would happen if a material was to leak/spill are also addressed.
Spill cleanup procedures
Best Management practices
Trash and recycling on ground
Practices to control erosion
Good housekeeping
Preventive maintenance on machinery and vehicles
No dumping liquids, except city water, onto pavements or gravel areas.

Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan
(SWPPP)
We are required a SWPPP for two reasons:
Monthly inspections of catch basins and outdoor storage areas

Annual and quarterly inspections of our outfalls

Spill procedures in place to minimize the amount of material that may reach the river

Best management practices in place

Take a minute before starting on a new project or task and ask yourself:

Is what I’m doing have potential to:
• Release into the air?
• Spill onto soil and be soaked into the ground?
• Potential to enter a sanitary drain or Storm Sewer?
• If something was to spill would it be over 5 gallons?

It is a lot less work to prevent a spill than it is to clean one up.
What is Stormwater?
Stormwater is the water that originates during a rain event. Stormwater that does not soak into the ground becomes surface runoff and flows over roads, parking lots, and other paved surfaces, picking up pollutants that may eventually make its way to a river or lake.
Requirements of the plan:
We discharge water into the Milwaukee River.
We have outdoor storage of equipment and materials.
Silt fence in place to reduce erosion.
March 9, 2016
A hose on a contractors crane begin to leak one to two gallons of hydraulic fluid.
Sewer savers and absorbent pads were placed to keep the spill contained to the asphalt.
