A pamphlet summarizing the oil Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasures (SPCC) Rules for agriculture is now available on the ARA Web site. This program was developed by EPA and calls for farmers and retail facilities to have an oil spill prevention plan, or an SPCC Plan, in place by Nov. 10, 2011.

ARA has been working closely with EPA to help ensure that information regarding the SPCC rules is communicated to the agriculture industry. As a result of these efforts, ARA is the only organization that currently has permission from EPA to distribute reprints of the brochure with ARA’s logo and contact information listed on the back. EPA is also directing farmers and others in the industry to the ARA Web site to download the brochure. Click here to print your own copy, or contact the ARA office to order a limited quantity of hard copies.  

A significant amount of additional information on the SPCC Rules is also available on the EPA Web site. This includes fact sheets, frequently asked questions, a template for an SPCC plan and other resources. Click here to access this information.
