Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Louisiana has a spill prevention and control plan requirement for oil storage facilities that is similar to the federal spill prevention, control, and countermeasure (SPCC) plan requirements. The federal SPCC plan may be included in the state contingency plan, but the state may require additional information. The federal SPCC plan and the state contingency plan are two separate and distinct plans. For more information on the federal SPCC plan requirements, see the national section SPILL PREVENTION—SPCC PLAN.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Emergency Response Section is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's spill prevention and control plan requirements. EPA is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the federal SPCC plan rules.
