Spill, prevention, control and countermeasure plan


The purpose of this Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan is to describe the oil storage operations at Lynn University and to provide information on the prevention of spills, containment of spills, clean-up measures, and reporting procedures to be used in the event of an hazardous spill. This plan is intended to meet the spill prevention and planning requirements of the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (US EPA) Oil Pollution Prevention Regulations codified as 40 CFR 112.


Lynn University is required to prepare, maintain and follow a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) since greater than 1,320 gallons of petroleum products are stored above ground and the release of oil in harmful quantities could potentially affect the nearest body of water, which are the freshwater lakes on campus and the L.W.D.D. Canal L-43 to the north of the campus. Lynn University’s SPCC Plan, which has been written to comply with the regulations defined under 40 CFR Part 112, is available for inspection in Auxiliary Services.
