SPCC Rules for Farmers
May 08, 2014
There have been a lot of questions about the SPCC Rule. Hopefully, this information will clear up any confusion.

Farms that store less than 1,320 gallons of diesel, gasoline, hydraulic oil, lube oil, crop oil or vegetable oil above ground or less than 42,000 gallons below ground do not need an SPCC plan.

What is a “farm” for purposes of the SPCC rule?

In the SPCC rule, EPA defines a farm as “a facility on a tract of land devoted to the production of crops or raising of animals, including fish, which produced and sold, or normally would have produced and sold, $1,000 or more of agricultural products during a year.”

What farms are subject to the SPCC rule?

The SPCC rule applies to owners or operators of farms that:

  • Store, transfer, use, or consume oil or oil products, AND
  • Could reasonably be expected to discharge oil to waters of the United States or adjoining shorelines. Farms that meet these criteria are subject to the SPCC rule if they meet at least one of the following capacity thresholds:
    • Above ground oil storage capacity greater than 1,320 gallons, OR
    • Completely buried oil storage capacity greater than 42,000 gallons.

The following are exempt from the SPCC rule:

  • Completely buried storage tanks subject to all the technical requirements of the underground storage tank regulations
  • Containers with a storage capacity less than 55 gallons of oil
  • Waste water treatment facilities
  • Permanently closed containers
  • Motive power containers (e.g., automotive or truck fuel tanks)
