Please note, the increased aggregated capacities are not effectively immediately (as noted by the asterisk in the table above). The legislation calls for a study to be conducted by the EPA and the USDA within one year of the bill becoming law to determine whether the 6,000 gallon aggregate aboveground storage exemption level is appropriate. Based on the results of that study, the exemption level may be lowered from 6,000 gallons, but cannot be lowered below 2,500 gallons, based on a significant risk of discharge into water. Once the study is complete, EPA and USDA have 18 months to write a rule to adjust the exemption level, and that will be subject to a public comment period.
In regards to what is effective immediately (as this gets confusing), the legislation increases the threshold levels for when a farmer will be required to hire a professional engineer (PE) to write a SPCC Plan –
Individual tank with capacity of 10,000 gallons or more;
Aggregate storage capacity of 20,000 gallons or more;
Farmers with less than 20,000 aggregate can self-certify their SPCC Plan.
