Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. In addition to the requirements established under the federal Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan rules governing oil spills, Oregon has added its own spill prevention and response plan (contingency plan) requirements, which in many respects are more stringent than the federal plan. In some cases, all or portions of the state contingency plan may be used to satisfy the federal SPCC plan requirements.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Water Quality Division is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's oil spill contingency plan rules. EPA Region 10 enforces the federal SPCC plan requirements in Oregon.
