Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasure Plans
Are you prepared for a worst-case oil spill scenario? These days, the law requires you to be. Recently, the EPA has implemented new SPCC deadlines and rule definitions that every company storing gasoline, oil, or solvent needs to be aware of. We can help you stay in compliance with SPCC requirements by:
Determining rule applicability to your facility and equipment and creating SPCC Plans that are easy to implement.
Conducting any required tank and piping integrity testing with our in-house certified inspectors.
Designing secondary containment systems for even the most corrosive, toxic and mobile chemicals.
Preparing and updating all your response plans (FRP, HWCP, SWP3, RMP) and streamlining into an Integrated Contingency Plan.
Resolve has developed, implemented, and certified SPCC plans at dozens of facilities, including major petroleum tank farms and oil distribution terminals, military installations, and transportation hubs. Our Plans have passed the most stringent audits by EPA, US Air Force and Coast Guard. Clients include:
Tank Integrity Testing
Federal regulations such as the EPA’s SPCC Rule require periodic integrity testing of storage tanks to ensure their reliability. Determining the appropriate inspection standard, scope and frequency can be half the battle. We can make sure your tanks are up to par with minimal or no interruption by:
Selecting the optimum integrity test program for your needs—one that meets all legal requirements but avoids unnecessary expense or tank downtime.
Performing internal and external tank and piping inspections with our STI and API certified inspectors.
Preparing and certifying comprehensive reports to document each tank inspection, identify future tank testing intervals, and provide recommendations for any necessary corrective actions.
Updating and PE-certifying SPCC Plans to integrate with updated inspection standards.
Over the years, we’ve performed tank integrity tests at DOD facilities, manufacturing plants, industrial wastewater plants, and oil terminals. Clients include:
