Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Indiana does not have state-specific requirements for spill plans. EPA Region 5 conducts on-site facility inspections and oversight for spill prevention, control, and countermeasures (SPCC) plans.

The state also has provisions in its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program for best management practices (BMPs) that include requirements for oil spill plans. In addition, Indiana has also developed regulations that include requirements for SPCC planning for activities related to used oil management.

Administration and enforcement. EPA Region 5 administers and enforces the federal SPCC plan requirements in Indiana. IDEM's Emergency Response Section is available 24 hours a day to receive spill reports and provide response assistance. The primary role of the section is to facilitate spill response actions from persons experiencing spills to soil and water.
