Spill Prevention & Countermeasures Plan

spill preventionThe United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) Oil Pollution Prevention Regulations require that any facility that meets certain criteria have a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan.

Williams College is committed to conducting operations in a safe and responsible manner. This policy is implemented by an active safety program, well-designed and maintained facilities, trained employees and planning for emergency response. Extensive precautionary measures have been taken to minimize the potential for oil spills or leaks at the College. In the unlikely event that a spill occurs, containment designs or other physical limitations are such that there is almost complete assurance that such a spill will be contained on-site.
