1.3    Five-Year Review [112.5(b)]

 112.5(b) If you are the owner or operator of a facility subject to this part, you must,
 notwithstanding compliance with paragraph 112.5(a) of this section, complete a review
 and evaluation of the SPCC Plan at least once every five years from the date your
 facility becomes subject to this part; or, if your facility was in operation on or before
 August 16, 2002, five years from the date your last review was required under this
 part. As a result of this review and evaluation, you must amend your SPCC Plan
 within six months of the review to include more effective prevention and control
 technology if the technology has been field-proven at the time of the review and will
 significantly reduce the likelihood of a discharge as described in §112.1(b) from the
 facility. You must implement any amendment as soon as possible, but not later than
 six months following preparation of any amendment. You must document your
 completion of the review and evaluation, and must sign a statement as to whether you
 will amend the Plan, either at the beginning or end of the Plan or in a log or an
 appendix to the Plan. The following words will suffice, “I have completed review and
 evaluation of the SPCC Plan for (name of facility) on (date), and will (will not) amend
 the Plan as a result.” (c) Have a Professional Engineer certify any technical
 amendment to your Plan in accordance with 112.3(d).

 The SPCC Plan should be reviewed and evaluated at least once every five years to
 determine if the SPCC Plan accurately reflects the facility operations and to determine
 if better prevention measures could be applied. The SPCC Plan review form should
 be filled out for each SPCC Plan five-year review. A P.E. review and certification
 should be conducted, if needed.

3.3   Facility Location and Operations

Northeast Community College is a post-secondary educational institution with its
campus located at 801 East Benjamin Avenue in Norfolk, Nebraska. The college
maintains 18 buildings on a 205 acre campus. The college stores oil in above ground
tanks, with storage capacities in excess of 1,320 gallons. Therefore, Northeast
Community College is required by EPA’s Oil Pollution Prevention Regulation (40 CFR
Part 112) to prepare and implement this Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure
(SPCC) Plan.

Please refer to Appendix B and B-1 for identification of the campus location.

The term “oil” is defined in 40 CFR Part 112 very broadly and includes such materials
as gasoline, used oil, and non-petroleum oils. The college handles and stores oil to
serve a variety of needs. The major oil handling and storage activities at the campus
are represented by the following areas, and are the subject of this SPCC plan:

        Motor vehicle fuels
        Used oil storage
        Building elevator machine rooms
        Sand interceptors
        Used kitchen grease and vegetable oil
        Exterior oil cooled electrical power transformers

An overview of each oil storage area is provided below in Section 3.4. Please refer to
Appendix B-1 (campus site plan) to identify the locations where oil is handled and
stored.

Motor Vehicle Fuels

Unleaded gasoline is stored and dispensed with equipment located behind the Physical
Plant building. The gasoline storage tank is a Xerxes 4,000-gallon 6’x22’ single wall
fiberglass underground storage tank (UST). The UST has a spill contain manhole 2”
vent float valve, 2” vent pipe with updraft cap, 2” suction stub flex connecter with enviro
boot, vertical check valve and 4 utility anchors for anchoring tank. An in-tank monitoring
system monitors for leaks and keeps watch for high water conditions.

Diesel fuel is stored in a 100-gallon aboveground storage tank in a pickup. A
maintenance person follows guidelines in loading and unloading fuel from this tank to
eliminate spills. A spill kit is located in the vehicle in case of a spill.

Used Oil Storage

Used oil accumulation/storage sites are located indoors at Northeast Community
College with the exception of the used cooking grease and oil which is located outside
of the Student Center Building. Used oil is stored in marked used oil drums set on or in
containment vessels (spill pallets) manufactured for that purpose. Northeast
accumulates roughly 1300 gallons of used oil per year. Accumulated used oil is
shipped off-site roughly twice per year.

In the event of a leak or spill of used oil that is not completely contained by the spill
pallet, oil would run into floor drains that are connected to a sand interceptor, which
drains to the sewer system.

Building Elevator Machine Rooms

There are two campus buildings that have hydraulic elevators. Hydraulic oil is stored in
a makeup reservoir mounted on the hydraulic pump for the elevator in the elevator
machine room, as well as in the hydraulic cylinder on the elevator and in the
interconnecting piping. Northeast stores no additional oil on campus for these
elevators. A drain cover has been placed in the elevator machine room at the Student
Center. When the sump pump is in operation, the cover will be removed. Listed below
are campus buildings having elevators and the size of their elevator oil storage
reservoirs.

4.2   EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT

Emergency equipment includes items that may be used during an oil spill or oil spill
cleanup. Following an emergency, expendable equipment is replaced.

4.3   WASTE HANDLING AND DISPOSAL

Northeast Community College will handle and dispose of wastes according to state and
federal waste regulations. Specific waste handling and disposal information cannot be
provided due to the variability in the materials spilled and the volume of the spill.
However, the following flowchart was developed to assist Northeast Community
College in waste handling, disposal and characterization as it applies to SPCC related
materials.

               General Spill Waste Handling and Disposal Flowchart

                    Identify extent of contamination including:
                    *Recovered product or material (e.g., recovered oil),
                    *Spent spill control materials and equipment (e.g.,
                     sorbents, pigs, etc.), and
                    *Contaminated media (e.g., oily water, contaminated
                     soil).



                    Arrange for containers to place waste materials on or in,
                    including:

6.0    DRAINAGE CONTROL DIVERSIONARY STRUCTURES AND CONTAINMENT
       [112.7(a)(3) and (c)]

At Northeast Community College, oil storage and oil use operations have various types
of secondary containment systems to prevent oil spills from impacting navigable
waterways. Exceptions to the secondary containment systems are identified in the
applicable sections of this SPCC Plan. Specific spill prevention and control measures
(i.e. specific to the oil storage, use or operation) are identified in Sections 10.0 to 14.0 of
this SPCC Plan.

7.0    DEMONSTRATION OF IMPRACTICABILITY [112.7(d)]

Northeast Community College has 17 pad mount electrical transformers located through
out campus. These transformers are connected to an underground primary loop system
(7200 volts) with power supplied by Nebraska Public Power (NPPD). These units
contain varying amounts of oil used as a dielectric fluid or insulation for the internal
parts of the transformer. Containment devices are not available to place under these
units. They are constructed on a concrete slab with high voltage wiring passing through
the concrete slab via conduit into the bottom of the transformer. Oil leaks that may
occur would be visible on the concrete surface.

In-house personnel conduct regular visual inspections of these transformers. Yearly
inspections will be contracted through NPPD to monitor for signs of leakage.
Absorbents are kept on hand such as sand or oil dry to contain possible leaks. Prompt
repair or replacement of any unit will be contracted to NPPD as our service provider.

8.0    INSPECTIONS, TESTS, AND RECORDS [112.7(e)]

At the time this SPCC Plan was last revised, the following inspection and recordkeeping
program was established to reduce the possibility of a release of oil to the environment.
Northeast may modify this plan as it deems appropriate.

      Equipment/Item            Description of Inspection             Frequency
Oil tanks in Diesel and Auto   Inspect for corrosion and     At least monthly
Mechanics                      leaks
Gasoline and diesel fuel       Inspect for corrosion and     At least monthly
tanks, piping and              leaks
dispensers
Elevator oil reservoirs and    Inspect for corrosion and     At least monthly
piping in Ag/Allied Health     leaks
and Student Center
Transformers                   Inspect for corrosion and   At least monthly
                               leaks
Used cooking oil               Inspect for corrosion and   At least monthly
                               leaks

Only personnel familiar with the tank and tanker trucks will conduct loading and
unloading. Personnel should demonstrate proficiency with tanker valves, hoses, and
pumps, and with tank filling procedures. The Facility Manager, SPCC Coordinator or
their designated representatives should observe the proficiency testing. Personnel will
be present throughout the loading and unloading operation. Any spills, leaks, faulty
equipment, or other concerns will be reported to the facility manager or SPCC
Coordinator. These concerns will be recorded in the SPCC Plan Section 5.1, Past
Spills, Leaks, and Releases.

Inspection of Tanks

Tanks will be inspected continually by loading and unloading personnel. Personnel will
be instructed to conduct a visual survey of the tank facilities each time loading and
unloading occurs. Hoses and valves should be inspected for leaks or wear before each
loading and unloading operation.

Emergency Procedures

Any release of fuel or used oil to the ground surface will be immediately reported to the
SPCC Coordinator or Facility Manager. A release of 25 or more gallons requires
immediate notification to the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) in
accordance with Title 126 – Rules and Regulations Pertaining to the Management of
Waste (Chapter 18 – Releases Of Oil Or Hazardous Substances).




Northeast Community College SPCC Plan                                                        20
In the event of a large scale release, (partial or complete failure of a tank or release
from a valve that cannot be stopped), equipment should be mobilized to construct a
containment berm. Any pooled product should be pumped into an available container.
Product could be pumped to the containment structure if no other container is available.

Training for a large-scale release should include, at a minimum, a discussion of the
exact location and availability of emergency equipment such as earth moving equipment
and absorbent booms.

9.2   Designated Person

Jim Robertson, Director of Physical Plant and Safety, is responsible for overseeing the
implementation of this SPCC Plan. Mr. Robertson’s office phone number is (402) 844-
7102.

9.3   Briefings

Discharge prevention briefings for oil-handling personnel will be scheduled and
conducted at least once a year to assure adequate understanding of the SPCC Plan.
The briefings will highlight and describe known discharges.

10.0   SECURITY

Northeast Community College is manned during normal working hours. The facility is
not fenced; however, most of the drums are located indoors in buildings that are locked
when the college is closed. Tanks with valves are located inside buildings that are
locked when unattended, ensuring that the valves remain in the closed position when in
non-operating or non-standby status. The facility lighting is adequate to detect spills
and deter vandalism during nighttime hours, except that there is no lighting for the
transformer at the east end of the dormitories.

Security measures employed by Northeast that assist in preventing the discharge of
petroleum include the following:

Motor Vehicle Fuels
   The pump to access fuel is kept locked.
   The cap on the fill connection to the gasoline tank is kept locked to prevent
   unauthorized transfer of product to the storage tank.
   Operation of the fuel dispensing is controlled by a key system with access
   controlled by NECC maintenance.
   Areas surrounding the motor vehicle fueling tank have adequate lighting to allow for
   24-hour surveillance.

Other Oils
   Used oil storage drums are in locked areas with limited access.
   Building elevator machine rooms and elevator pits are locked with limited access.
   Drain plugs on exterior transformers are in locked cabinets with limited access.
   Used kitchen grease dumpster is located within a screened dumpster pen, under
    light and in full view of security patrols.

11.0   FACILITY TANK CAR AND TANK TRUCK LOADING/UNLOADING RACK
       (EXCLUDING OFFSHORE FACILITIES) [112.7(h)]

The fuel and used oil tank truck loading and unloading areas do not have sufficient
containment for the largest compartment of a tank truck.

Gasoline is purchased and delivered to the maintenance building by a 4,000 gallon tank
truck. The tank truck is equipped with spill containment absorbents. The tanker is also
equipped with a quick coupler that will shut off when the tank is full, so as not to allow a
spill. On average, 3500 gallons of gasoline is delivered four times per year.

Any spill related to unloading gasoline would spill to the concrete driveway below and
travel as described in section 5.0 above.

A spill response kit for small fuel spills is housed in the maintenance shop. Large
quantities of sand and a front-end loader are located nearby and can be of use for spill
containment.



Northeast Community College SPCC Plan                                                     22
Tank trucks have a vehicle brake interlock system to prevent vehicles from departing
before disconnection of oil transfer lines. The loading and unloading procedures include
visual observations of the lowermost drain outlets prior to departure of tank trucks.
Northeast Community College provides wheel chocks in loading/unloading areas to
prevent vehicles from departing before complete disconnection of flexible or fixed oil
transfer lines.

12.0   FACILITY DRAINAGE [112.8]

None of the diked storage areas allow for drainage. Because tanks are located inside,
precipitation does not accumulate in containment. Spills or leaks within secondary
containment are removed with absorbent materials, or a large spill may be removed
with a pump.

Used Oil Storage

Used oil spilled in the buildings would be contained within the area or enter the sand
interceptor, and would not be exposed to stormwater runoff but could discharge to the
city sewer system.

Building Hydraulic Elevators

Refer to Appendix B for information on the direction of stormwater flow in these areas.

Transformers

Oil spilled from pad mounted exterior transformers would follow the local topography to
the nearest storm drain. Refer to Appendix B for the location, topography, and nearest
storm drain at each transformer.

Used Cooking Oils

Oil spilled from a used cooking oil container would follow the local topography to the
nearest storm drain. Refer to Appendix B for the location, topography, and nearest
storm drain at the storage location.

Sand Interceptors

Any oil discharged through the sand interceptors will not be exposed to stormwater
runoff. The sand interceptors are connected to the city sanitary sewer (POTW) and will
not prevent discharge of oil.

13.3   Testing

 112.8(c)(6) Test each aboveground container for integrity on a regular schedule, and
 whenever you make material repairs. The frequency of and type of testing must take
 into account container size and design (such as floating roof, skid-mounted, elevated,
 or partially buried). You must combine visual inspection with another testing technique
 such as hydrostatic testing, radiographic testing, ultrasonic testing, acoustic emissions
 testing, or another system of non-destructive shell testing. You must keep comparison
 records and you must also inspect the container’s supports and foundations. In
 addition, you must frequently inspect the outside of the container for signs of
 deterioration, discharges, or accumulation of oil inside diked areas. Records of
 inspections and tests kept under usual and customary business practices will suffice
 for purposes of the paragraph.

 This section addresses the inspection procedures used by the facility.

Visual operations of the aboveground storage tanks are performed by facility personnel
during operating hours. Form (i.e., documented) assessments are conducted monthly
to examine the exterior of the aboveground tanks and the containment areas for the
following:
!      Leaks
!      Shell distortions, signs of settlement
!      Corrosion
!      Condition of foundation and supports
!      Paint coatings
!      Insulation systems and
!      Appurtenances

These assessments are documented using the Monthly Assessment Form, which can
be found in Appendix C.

The steel tanks are inspected periodically in general accordance with the Steel Tank
Institute (STI) SP001-00 Standard For Inspection of In-Service Shop Fabricated
Aboveground Tanks for Storage of Combustible and Flammable Liquids.

The frequency of inspecting is based on the following criteria:
!      Product stored and frequency of use,
!      Results of exterior visual inspections,
!      Corrosion prevention systems,
!      Results of previous inspections,
!      Methods and materials of construction and repair, and
!      Location of tanks.

Integrity testing will be performed every ten years unless manufacturer’s
recommendations or previous integrity testing data indicate otherwise.



Northeast Community College SPCC Plan                                                   25
Oil tank in diesel - purchased September 1996.
Oil tanks in 1st and 2nd year auto mechanics - purchased December 2000.
Oil tank at farm – unknown age on tank.
Diesel fuel tank in pickup – unknown age on tank.

The records from these assessments and inspections are maintained in the Facility
Manager’s office.

13.4   Fail-Safe Engineering

The 500 gallon tank in the diesel building contains a dial that indicates the oil level. The
other oil containers use a hand gauge (dipstick) to prevent over filling. Personnel
monitor tank levels during filling of tanks.

13.5   Visible Discharge Correction

When a leak occurs, the area will be diked off and the tank will be repaired or a new
tank will be installed. When discovered, spilled oil is cleaned up by operating personnel
using oil spill cleanup supplies (e.g., floor dry, sand) located in various areas throughout
the facility.

13.6   Mobile or Portable Oil Storage Containers

Mobile or portable oil storage containers include 55-gallon drums and a 100-gallon
diesel tank on a pickup truck. 55-gallon drums, located on spill pallets, are properly
positioned to prevent a spill from reaching a navigable waterway. The diesel tank on
the pickup truck is not properly positioned to prevent a spill from reach a navigable
waterway.

14.0   FACILITY TRANSFER OPERATIONS, PUMPING, AND FACILITY PROCESS
       [112.8(d)]

Northeast Community College has underground pipes used to transfer fuel from
underground storage tanks to the dispensing pumps. The facility does not have
aboveground pipes used to transfer oil or fuel products.

The gasoline underground storage tank and appurtenances are in conformance with 40
CFR 280 and, therefore, are not addressed further in this SPCC Plan.

14.1   Buried Piping

The underground steel oil transfer pipelines are protected with coatings. If construction
activities expose an underground pipe, it will be examined and if corrosion or
deterioration is identified, corrective action will be taken. There are no aboveground
pipe installations. There is no interconnecting piping between tanks.

14.2   Inspections

Visual observations of valves are made throughout the day by operations personnel.
Valves are also examined during the monthly assessment. The Monthly Assessment
Form is included in Appendix C. Valves include those on tanks, transformers, and other
oil containers or oil-filled equipment.

15.0   FACILITY RESPONSE PLANS

The facility was determined not to be expected to cause substantial harm to the
environment by discharging oil into or on the navigable waters or adjoining shorelines.
Appendix F of this SPCC Plan includes the “Certification of the Applicability of the
Substantial Harm Criteria Checklist.”

                       Monthly Assessment Form Instructions

Tanks

The tanks should be visually assessed to determine if they are leaking and if they have
corrosion or other damage that may cause a leak. For information on the assessment
of the tank condition, review the “Monthly Assessment of Tank and Pipe Condition”
information provided on the following pages. Additionally, the foundation should be
observed for signs of strain, cracks or corrosion.

Containment Area

The inside of the containment area should be visually assessed for signs of oil that
might indicate a leak, and cracks or holes in the containment structure. The drain
valves or plugs should be closed or in place unless precipitation is being drained at the
time of the inspection.

Transfer Operations

Transfer equipment, including pipes, hoses, valves, flanges, and pumps should be
assessed for signs of leaks. The transfer equipment should also be visually observed
for corrosion, improper support or other potential damage. For information on the
assessment of the pipe condition, review the “Monthly Assessment of Tank and Pipe
Condition” information provided on the following pages. Out-of-service pipelines should
be capped or blind-flanged.

Tank Truck Loading and Unloading Areas

Areas where tank trucks load and unload should be visually observed for signs of leaks.
If the loading or unloading areas have containment systems, they should be surveyed to
determine that they are in adequate condition. Warning signs, where applicable, should
be legible.

Security

Lights around oil use, transfer and storage should be adequate for detecting spills and
as a preventative measure against vandalism. Security fences should be adequate for
preventing unauthorized entry and entrance gates should be closed and locked when
the facility is unattended.




Northeast Community College SPCC Plan                                                   33
                                                                 Appendix C-2 Continued

Tank and Pipe Condition

The monthly assessment (i.e., “tank condition ok” and “pipe condition ok”) includes
visual observations of the exterior surfaces of oil related tanks, pipes and equipment.
The purpose of the visual observation is to identify leaks; shell distortions; and
corrosions.

Personnel conducting monthly assessments are not required to be experts on
maintenance, corrosion, steel integrity or metal fatigue. The purpose of the monthly
assessment is to identify potential problems before they result in a release or spill. The
visual observations should not require tools or equipment unless insulation needs to be
removed to access the tank shell or a flashlight is required to observe unlit areas.

The following sections provide additional information on what to observe and note
during the monthly assessment.

Leaks

Leaks include, but are not limited to, leaks from fittings, valves, pipe connections,
flanges, seams, welds, and gaskets.

The tanks, pipes and valves, as well as the area underneath the tanks, pipes and valves
should be observed for signs of leaks. Oil leaks should be cleaned up and the source of
the leak identified and corrected if possible during the monthly assessment. If the leak
cannot be repaired at the time of the assessment, it should be reported to the
maintenance supervisor so that appropriate action can be taken (e.g., through a work
order).

For fill areas (i.e., areas where the visible oil could have come from a drip or spill during
loading or unloading), the oil should be cleaned up and the area observed at a later
date to determine if the visible oil was from a leak, a drip or spill during loading or
unloading.

Shell Distortions

Shell distortion includes dents, bumps or bulges that may have occurred from impact,
over-pressurization or over-filling.

Distortion (e.g., dents and bulges) in the shell of a tank or equipment that are visible to
the naked eye should be noted. Figure 1 depicts a dent and a bulge in a tank shell.




Northeast Community College SPCC Plan                                                      34
                                                               Appendix C-2 Continued




                        Figure 1 – Tank with Dents and Bulges

Shell distortions that have already been identified and evaluated do not need to be
identified unless the distortion increases in size or depth.

Corrosion

Corrosion, usually present as rust, is a result of oxidation or chemical reaction with the
tank or pipe wall. To assist NECC personnel in quantifying the corrosion, the following
guidelines are provided. These guidelines may not represent the most conservative
interpretations of corrosion. NECC personnel should also use their judgment regarding
the risk of tank failure due to corrosion. Remember, rust never sleeps.

Three categories of corrosion should be classified in the monthly assessments:

!      Surface rust,
!      Pitting, and
!      Stress corrosion.

To provide a consistent approach for the monthly assessments, interpretations are
provided for the three categories of corrosion. Even though these interpretations were
developed for consistency, they should not limit personnel from using more
conservative interpretations of the type of corrosion that might be observed.

Surface Rust

As depicted in Figure 2, surface rust is characterized by a rust colored patch with a
relatively even surface (i.e., no deep or sever pits or crevices).




                           Figure 2 – Example of Surface Rust

If surface rust is visible through paint or has displaced paint and is larger than the flat
side of a dime, as depicted in Figure 3, the surface rust should be identified on the
monthly assessment form.




          Figure 3 – Visual Depiction of the Dime Comparison for Surface Rust

Pitting

Pitting is localized corrosion that results in pits or crevices in the steel. Rust that results
in pitting deeper than the edge of a dime, as depicted in Figure 4, should be identified

Stress Corrosion

Stress corrosion is a combination of mechanical stress and corrosive conditions. Stress
corrosion normally results in localized cracks with rust.

Visible rusty cracks in the steel (i.e., not just cracks in the paint) may indicate stress
corrosion cracking. If cracks are longer or wider than a dime, as depicted in Figure 5,
they should be noted on the monthly assessment form.
