2017 Melt SPCC/SWPPP
Transcript of 2017 Melt SPCC/SWPPP
December 5, 2016
A scrap vendor was delivering a load of busheling. As he was dumping with the trailer all the way up, a hydraulic line blew out. A material handler was coming through the area on a forklift at the time and saw the spill. The EE used the Cat loader to put down TMS fines to soak up the oil. Scrap trucks were diverted to the west yard until the clean up was completed.
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.
December 10, 2016
Dreamscape came in to deliver a load of lime. He notified the Melt Scale Shack that were was oil all over the truck road starting at the first stop sign and continuing though the intersection with the auto road. It must have come from an unknown outbound truck.
April 30, 2017
An employee noticed a pool of fluid under the John Deere loader after taking a scoop of EAF dust out of the drop box. The spill was indoors on a concrete floor with no drains in the area.
Requirements of the plan:
Monthly inspections of equipment.
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
December 10, 2016
A grease pipe for the cross transfer rolls was leaking grease. The pipe had a patch put on in as an attempt to contain the grease. The patch failed, causing about 10 gallons for grease to fall to the ground in a pile. After the cast was complete, Maintenance cut out about 20 feet for pipe and replaced it with new pipe. The grease was scooped up and disposed of with the used grease in the Lube Area.
That pipe and another similar pipe were replaced with the correct high pressure pipe during the December outage.
Best Management practices
Mill Scale not contained in walls
Practices to control erosion
Preventive maintenance on machinery and vehicles
No dumping liquids, except city water, onto pavements or gravel areas.
Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan
We are required to 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.
Fluid was identified as hydraulic fluid and cleaned up with Floor Dry. Good response.
The PMs for the hoses on the equipment were reviewed.
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.
Material Handler was filling the John Deere with diesel at the Shuttle Lift diesel tank. He put the nozzle in the tank and started filling. He walked over to the Shuttle Lift during the fueling. When he came back he noticed it was overflowing. He shut off the flow. The flow stop did not work as expected. Pads and fines were used to clean up the spill.
October 22, 2016
Pump nozzle replaced with a model with auto shutoff (this was done on all diesel tanks on site).
Updated PIT training to state EEs must stay by the pump when fueling.
Spill response procedures are being revised and updated training will be delivered in an upcoming shift meeting
Good spill response.
Scrap vendor was contacted to check on their PM process for their trucks.
The spill was cleaned up by Charter EEs.
It is important for everyone (employees, contractors and drivers) to report spills along roads and in parking areas on our property.
