Indiana University Northwest utilizes several forms of energy to operate efficiently. In an effort to meet these energy demands, numerous oils are stored and used in various tanks, containers, and electrical equipment throughout the campus. These storage areas have been equipped with modern safety measures and are highly monitored to minimize any impacts to human health and the environment. A Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan has been prepared for the campus pursuant to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Oil Pollution Prevention Regulations (40 CFR Part 112). This SPCC Plan establishes preparedness, prevention, planning, spill response, and spill notification procedures as set forth in applicable state and federal regulations. This SPCC Plan has been compiled by Indiana University Northwest’s Office of Environmental Health & Safety in collaboration with Indiana University Northwest’s Physical Plant and Indiana University’s Office of Environmental Health and Safety Management (UOEHSM).
For more information about Indiana University Northwest’s SPCC, please contact the Office of Environmental Health & Safety at (219) 981-4230.
