Framingham State University is committed to conducting operations in a safe and responsible manner. This Spill Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan is implemented to properly train staff and to plan for emergency response. Extensive precautionary measures have been taken to minimize the potential for oil spills or leaks at the University. In the unlikely event that a spill occurs, containment design or other physical limitations are such that there is almost complete assurance that such a spill will be contained on-site so as to prevent the oil spill form reaching and discharging into or upon the navigable water of the United States or adjoining shorelines as defined in Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 112.
The plan is designed for use by the Facilities Department and emergency planners to assist them in carrying out a timely and proper response to spills.
It is the responsibility of all supervisors and Facilities Department personnel to be familiar with this Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan. Proper attention to these fundamental control and response concepts can mitigate the potential for a release to occur at the facility.
This plan includes all applicable University-wide oil storage and handling operations. The complete plan is located in the Facilities Office at 42 Maynard Road.
