Interstate Products: Federal EPA & SPCC GUIDANCE TO FARMERS

Resources for Oil Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Program Information for Farmers

Interstate Products, Inc. (IPI), the leading provider of spill containment products and the preferred source for environmental and industrial solutions has re-published a March 2011 federal Environmental Protection Agency Fact Sheet which provides specific guidelines and information regarding the Clean Water Act, Oil Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) information for farmers. The Fact Sheet provides detailed descriptions of farms and agricultural operations covered by the SPCC program, compliance plan outlines and other relevant issues.  This information is now available on the Interstate Products website at:

IPI is dedicated to providing commercial farmers and industrial agriculture firms easy access to resources and links to official information, including specific plan outlines that meet all applicable rule requirements of 40 CFR 112.6(a)(3). Additionally, Interstate Products provides an array of standard and customized solutions, including spill containment tanks and berms that enable farmers with the tools required to prevent, contain, mitigate and clean up oil, gasoline and other chemical spills.
Nearly all commercial-size growers are affected by the SPCC rules as the updated fuel storage and containment regulations will require farmers, who have on-farm fuel storage of greater than 1,350 gallons in above-ground containers, to come into compliance of the applicable rules. IPI’s intention is to assist our customers and farmers whose operations are subject to SPCC rule compliance. The deadline to prepare and implement revised SPCC plans for farms is November 10th, 2011.
