Developing a Spill Prevention Response Plan

The Storage Tank and Spill Prevention Act (Act 32 of 1989) requires owners of aboveground storage tank facilities, with a total aboveground capacity greater than 21,000 gallons of regulated substances, to develop and submit a Spill Prevention Response (SPR) Plan to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Regulated substances include petroleum products and hazardous substances.

The initial deadline for owners of existing facilities to submit SPR Plans was August 4, 1990. The purpose of the Spill Prevention Response Plan is to minimize and abate the threat to public health and the environment from releases of regulated substances.

The Storage Tank Program is administered by DEP's Bureau of Waste Management, Division of Storage Tanks, P.O. Box 8762, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8762, 1-800-42-TANKS (in PA) or 717-772-5599, or through the PA AT&T Relay Service at 800-654-5984 (Telecommunication Devices for the Deaf).
