Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure

Kennesaw State University (KSU) is required to implement and comply with Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) rules as regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and requirement as regulated by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD). Both sets of rules were written to prevent the pollution of the waters of the United States from oils and other polluting materials. KSU maintains a SPCC plan to fulfill the requirements of these regulations. The plans are intended to provide guidelines to the University community for preventing the release of oil and other listed polluting materials into the environment, especially to surface waters. The Plan provides guidelines for inspections, preventive maintenance, commitment of resources, and emergency response procedures that will be implemented in the event of an oil or polluting material spill at the KSU.
