Farm Fuel Deadline is May 10, 2013

April 26, 2013
By: Nate Birt, Top Producer Deputy Managing Editor

Farms storing oil and related products in specified quantities must have a containment plan written down by May 10, Ohio Ag Manager reports. Farms with 1,320 gallons of above-ground storage or with 42,000 gallons of below-ground storage must comply under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules.

To comply, farms must have a containment area to prevent fuel discharge until cleanup occurs. They must also implement a written plan—housed on-site and known as a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan—that demonstrates the ways the operation is preventing discharges into the environment.


Self-certification is allowed in some cases; in others, certification by a professional engineer is necessary.
