EPA Updates SPCC Plan........Again

On June 11, 2009 USEPA again extended the compliance date for the Spill Prevention & Control Countermeasure (SPCC) rules for petroleum storage facilities to November 10, 2010.  Facilities must amend or prepare and implement SPCC plans by the compliance date in accordance with the revisions to the rule.  Farms must also amend or prepare their SPCC plans and implement them by that date.  A final rule is expected to be published prior to the previous compliance date of July 1, 2009.
