Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. New York has adopted oil spill prevention, control, and countermeasure regulations in addition to the federal Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan rules as part of its own licensing requirements for certain facilities that store petroleum products. Facilities determined to be "major" in the state are subject to state-specific licensing and secondary containment requirements.

Administration and enforcement. EPA Region 2 has primary responsibility for administering the federal SPCC program requirements in the state. The regional offices of the DEC are responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's petroleum facility licensing program. The NY Hotline number for reporting an oil spill is 800-457-7362.
