Clean Up Gas Spill Emergency
Not all hazardous spills occur at industrial facilities, some spills happen at gas stations, while others occur due to tanker truck rollovers, and still, other spills are the result of intentional releases by nefarious actors. Regardless of where or even how a spill occurs, when it’s a spill that you’re responsible for cleaning up or if it’s one that negatively impacts you and the people and things you love, it becomes an emergency spill that needs quick and professional attention. Gasoline is a hazardous material that is an important part of our everyday lives. However, when gas is not stored or handled correctly it can cause harm to the people, animals, and the environment. And, will require immediate attention from qualified professionals. When an incident occurs that results in a hydrocarbon release the immediate response should include the safety of workers, passersby, and the environment.

Is Your Site Properly Prepared For A Gas Spill?
Since you never know when an environmental emergency is going to occur, having an environmental response team that’s able to respond around the clock is invaluable. What’s more important is having a plan in place to respond when a spill occurs. If you’ve ever accidentally pulled away from a gas pump before replacing the gas nozzle, you may have been surprised to learn that gasoline spill cleanup wasn’t necessary because gas didn’t start spewing from the engaged gas pump. That’s because the gas station has complied with the EPA’s guidelines by installing a quick-release coupler on their gas pumps that stop the flow of gas in case someone accidentally pulls away without replacing the gas nozzle. Each gas station is required to have an SPCC, which is a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure plan in place that provides for the installation of fail-safes to prevent a hazardous material release. This plan also outlines the steps that should be taken in the instance that prevention measures fail and gasoline is released in the form of a spill. If you own a gas station or are a manager of a gas station that does not have an SPPC, please contact our office for assistance in preparing one. Our environmental emergency response team will help you prepare one and can be available for all of your spill response needs going forward.
What is the purpose of an SPCC?
The purpose of the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure rule is to help facilities avoid discharging hazardous materials into the environment. Oil, gasoline, and other hydrocarbons can be dangerous to the environment, so every effort must be made to avoid their release, and to clean them up once they occur.
Does my facility need an SPCC?
Facilities that store more than 1320 gallons of petroleum products above ground or more than 42,000 gallons in completely buried containers below ground that could reasonably be expected to discharge oil into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines, should a spill occur, need to abide by the SPCC rule.
Where should my SPCC be kept?
The Environmental Protection Agency requires the owner or operator of the facility to prepare and implement the SPCC Plan. We work with business owners to create these plans to ensure compliance with the EPA regulations. Once prepared, the plan must be maintained at the location of the facility that is attended at least 4 hours per day.
