2 What is Iowa Farm A Syst? Iowa Farm*A*Syst is a farmstead assessment system developed to assist rural residents in protecting their water resources, particularly their drinking water. Individuals can tailor the Iowa Farm*A*Syst program to meet their needs by choosing specific topics that fit their farmstead or acreage. The Iowa Farm*A*Syst program is based on a series of 11 units. Each unit provides information on the subject area and an assessment worksheet to evaluate on-farm practices affecting water quality. Also included in the units are references to Iowa environmental laws and technical assistance contact information. How will I know which unit will help me? You will be able to identify the most useful Iowa Farm*A*Syst units by asking yourself the following questions. Do you Get your drinking water from a private well? Have any unused or abandoned wells on the farm? Have a private system to dispose of bathroom and kitchen wastewater? Have feedlots or barnyards? Raise livestock in confinement? Dispose of dead animals on your farm? Use or store pesticides? Use or store fertilizer? Use or store petroleum products? Use or store hazardous materials such as chemicals, batteries, or petroleum products? Have a manure storage unit?

The 11 Iowa Farm*A*Syst units are each designed to be stand-alone units. However, the first step to assessing your farmstead should be to draw a map of the area and label any potential sources of contamination. Every farmstead is unique. You need to evaluate your farmstead s site characteristics to determine the potential for groundwater and surface water contamination. This unit can help you get started. After you have mapped your farmstead, consider what management decisions may be affecting the quality of your water resources. This process will help you to prioritize which of the other Iowa Farm*A*Syst assessments you may want to complete.

3 Petroleum Storage and Management One gallon of fuel oil, or other petroleum product, is enough to contaminate 750,000 gallons of ground water. At low levels, humans may not be able to taste or smell petroleum contaminants in water even at levels where human health is affected! In addition, vapors from an underground fuel leak can collect in basement sumps or other underground structures and cause explosions. Storing liquid petroleum products, such as motor fuels, heating fuels, and fuel and lubricating oils, as well as animal fats and vegetable oils, can be a threat to your health and the environment. Petroleum fuel products contain toxic compounds that can potentially cause cancer. Contamination of groundwater and surface water by petroleum oil is one of the most serious environmental pollution problems because of adverse affects on human health and high clean up costs. Fortunately, preventing oil contamination of surface and groundwater can be easily achieved by developing and following plans as required by state and federal regulations. The Iowa Farm*A*Syst Petroleum Storage and Management publication will help you determine if: Your oil storage and handling practices are conducted in a manner that will protect your drinking water and the waters of the United States. You are following existing state and federal rules for aboveground storage tanks and underground storage tanks. This publication will provide information on tank location, design, installation, monitoring for leaks, tank removal and closure requirements. I have a fuel tank standing in my yard. Am I required to do anything special with it? Aboveground Storage Tanks An aboveground storage tank is defined in Iowa as an oil storage tank, including pipes, installed 90 percent above ground. Many farms and acreages keep fuel for vehicles and tractors on site, and it is often stored in aboveground tanks. Before installing aboveground tanks storing flammable or combustible liquids, you must submit a plan to the State Fire Marshal s Office for approval. In addition, local jurisdictions (full time fire departments) may require plans to be submitted to them for a local permit. Be approved by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) or an equivalent rating system. Have an external gate valve, emergency internal check valve and emergency venting. Be at least 40 feet from any building. If you have aboveground petroleum (gas, diesel and oil) storage tanks that are greater than 1,100 gallons in capacity, you must: Register that tank with the State Fire Marshall. Receive approval from the State Fire Marshall for additional installations and any modifications made to the tank. Have secondary containment. Abide by additional regulations as required by some local jurisdictions (full-time fire departments). A small gasoline leak of one drop per second can often go unnoticed, but it could result in the release of about 400 gallons of gasoline in one year. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources regulates underground storage tanks. The Iowa State Fire Marshal and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulate aboveground storage tanks. One gallon of fuel is enough to contaminate 750,000 gallons of ground water and severely pollute drinking water. 3

4 The U.S. EPA has other storage tank regulations that you should be aware of. You are required to develop and follow a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan if you: Store, transfer, use or consume oil or oil products, such as diesel fuel, gasoline, lube oil, hydraulic oil, adjuvant oil, crop oil, vegetable oil or animal fat. Have the capacity to store more than 2,500* gallons in aboveground containers or more than 42,000 gallons in completely buried containers. Could reasonably be expected to discharge oil to waters of the U.S. or adjoining shorelines, such as interstate waters, intrastate lakes, rivers and streams. * EPA proposed changing this threshold to 2,500 gallons in May A rule change is pending - watch this EPA webpage for more information. ( What is a Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC Plan)? The SPCC program was developed to prevent oil spills from entering the waters of the U.S. and adjoining shorelines. A SPCC plan ensures that you, your family and your farm workers are taking steps to prevent oils spills which can damage Iowa s water resources. A SPCC plan must clearly address operating procedures that you have in place to prevent an oil spill; control measures to prevent a spill from reaching surface water bodies; and countermeasures to contain, clean-up and mitigate the effects of an oil spill. The U.S. EPA administers the Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure program. EPA Region 7 has the authority to administer the SPCC rules for Iowa. Oil. Under the SPCC program, oil is defined as oil of any kind or in any form, including, but not limited to: fats, oils, or greases of animal, fish or marine mammal origin; vegetable oils, including oils from seeds, nuts, fruits or kernels; and, other oils and greases, including petroleum, fuel oil, sludge, synthetic oils, mineral oils, oil refuse or oil mixed with wastes other than dredged spoil. Note: Even though milk products are considered animal fat, they are exempt from the SPCC rules. Maintaining an SPCC plan If you already have a plan, you are required to update or amend it when there is a change in the facility design, construction, operation or maintenance. For example, if you add or remove containers, change secondary containment systems or change the transfer system, you should amend the plan. You also should document that you reviewed the plan, at least every five years. Preparing and Implementing an SPCC plan If you do not have a SPCC plan, you should prepare and implement one immediately. Not having a plan could expose you to substantial fines. Under certain conditions, you may need the assistance of a Professional Engineer (PE) to prepare and certify your SPCC plan. However, you may be eligible to prepare and self-certify your plan if: Your farm has a total oil storage capacity between 2,500 and less than 6,000 gallons* in aboveground containers AND Your farm has not had any reported discharges in the last three years (more than 1,000 gallons in a single discharge or more than 42 gallons in two discharges within a 12-month period). Your farm does not have any single storage container with capacity greater than 10,000 gallons or aggregate storage of less than 20,000 gallons. * This 6,000 gallon threshold may be adjusted by the EPA in the future. The U.S. EPA has many on-line resources, including worksheets, calculators, an example plan and a plan template that can help you develop your own SPCC plan. If you are unsure if you qualify to self-certify your plan, or if you have concerns about how to develop your plan, consult with a private engineering firm. See the For More Information section in this publication for contact information. If your farm has a total storage capacity of more than 10,000 gallons, or has had an oil spill, your SPCC plan must be certified by a Professional Engineer. 4

5 Calculating total oil storage capacity for SPCC Take an inventory of the oil storage capacity for your farming operation and write down the type of oil stored in each container. You must consider all storage containers that are 55 gallons or larger when calculating your total oil storage capacity, including: containers that can be used but are not currently in use. containers that are partially full and containers that are filled regularly. containers mounted in truck beds and on trailers. Next, identify and map the location of each oil storage container. Use the suggestions for preparing a map found in the Iowa Farm*A*Syst publication Assessing Your Farmstead Characteristic. For containers on trucks or trailers, you may want to map your drive routes, including any water bodies along the way, from the central fueling area to the field or transfer site. Your map will become part of your SPCC plan. If you have old unused containers, dispose of them properly or permanently close them so you do not need to include them in your SPCC plan. A permanently closed container has all liquid and sludge removed from the container and connecting lines, lines and piping have been disconnected from the container and blanked off, all valves (except for ventilation valves) have been closed and locked and conspicuous signs have been posted on each container stating that it is permanently closed and noting the date of closure. Once you have inventoried all of your storage containers, add together the total volume of all storage containers on your farm. The total volume equals the total storage capacity. You have the option of calculating the total storage capacity for different tracts of land or farm numbers (designated by the USDA Farm Service Agency). Or, you have the option to calculate the total storage capacity for your entire farming operation. Writing separate SPCC plans for different farm numbers could give you the advantage of being eligible to self-certify your plans. An advantage of combining your entire farming operation into one plan might be a cheaper cost for a single plan developed and certified by a Professional Engineer. Calculating Total Oil Shortage Under WRRDA, how do I determine what certification is required for my farm s plan? SPCC if your farm is subject to the SPCC rule (see the is my farm covered by SPCC? text box on the previous page for applicability criteria. 1. Calculate your aggregate aboveground oil storage capacity: Do not count: All containers on separate parcels that have a capacity of 1,000 gallons or less; Containers storing heating oil used solely at a single-family residence (e.g., your personal residence as the farm owner or operator); Pesticide application equipment or related mix containers (with adjuvant oil); Any milk and milk product container and associated piping and appurtenance; Completely buries oil tanks (underground storage or USTs) and associated piping and equipment that are subject to all of the technical requirements under EPA s underground storage tank regulations at 40 CFR part 280 or 281; Containers holding animal feed engredients approval for use in livestock feed by the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 2. Review your reportable discharge history. (See the What is reportable discharge history? text box on the previous page) 3. Use the following flowchart to determine what kind of certification is needed for your farm s SPCC Plan. What other information do I need for a SPCC Plan? The SPCC plan template and sample plan located on the EPA website provides good direction for what you should document in your plan. You will need to make sure those individuals who live or work on your farm 5

6 know and understand what to do should a spill occur. Be sure to document annual training activities. The plan also requires you to describe how you prevent overfilling containers by using alarms, audible vents or other procedures. Be sure you are able to verify that you use only containers that are suitable for the oil stored and that you periodically inspect your oil containers, pipes and secondary containment for leaks and defects. Secondary Containment Appropriate secondary containment must also be part of your plan. Secondary containment is a safety measure designed to prevent oil leaks and spills from contaminating the environment before they can be cleaned up. There are two types of secondary containment, sized and general. Sized secondary containment structures consist of a hard impermeable surface with diking or a double walled tank system. The structure should be sized to hold at least 110 percent of the tank volume, including any precipitation, and provide liquid tight protection. Piping should be made of steel and coated to prohibit corrosion. All piping should be within the secondary containment system, if possible. Examples of sized secondary containment for bulk storage containers include: Dikes, berms, or retaining walls, constructed of earth or concrete and built liquid tight to prevent oil from leaking under or through Curbing Spill diversion ponds and retention ponds Double walled tanks For mobile re-fuelers, such as fuel nurse tanks mounted on trucks or trailers, you may use general secondary containment such as sorbent material or drip pans. Drip pans must have a tight seal, with any bypass or discharge valves sealed closed. Always carry an emergency spill kit along with your nurse tank or truck mounted oil containers. Emergency spill kits are available commercially or you can prepare one yourself. Secondary containment also simplifies oil cleanup. If water has collected in your secondary containment structure, and no oil film or sheen is present, the water can be drained. If oil sheen is present, purchase absorbent pillows at your local agriculture supply store or petroleum dealer. Use the pillows to remove the film before draining the water. Remove debris like sticks and leaves as they collect in the containment structure to simplify emergency clean out. Emergency notification and equipment needs Knowing who to call in case of an oil spill will speed up the response time and prevent oil from moving off site or leaching into the groundwater. If an oil spill occurs, you may need the help of neighbors and their equipment, as well as emergency responders, to control the spill. If you know of earthmoving contractors who would be capable of building a containment berm quickly, be sure to include them in your list of contacts. Collect the necessary names and phone numbers and post the list in an easily visible location on the farm. Include the spill reporting numbers, your own cell phone number and the numbers of another person you have put in charge of potential spills, just in case you are not there or cannot be reached. Remember to tell anyone who lives or works on your farm where the emergency contact list and SPCC plan is located. The list of emergency contacts will become part of your SPCC plan. Remember, the steps you take to develop your SPCC plan will help you be better prepared to respond to an oil spill. I have a buried fuel tank. Am I required to do anything special with it? Underground Storage Tanks An underground storage tank is a tank and associated piping with 10 percent or more of its volume below ground. Any underground tank containing a regulated substance is subject to state requirements for underground storage tanks. Examples of regulated substances include gasoline, diesel fuel and waste oil. Tanks 6

7 used for storing heating oil, if used on the premises, are not subject to underground tank requirements. However, heating oil tanks can be a threat to your health and the environment. Proper tank maintenance and management is recommended. Check with the local fire inspector for local ordinances concerning home heating oil tanks. Owners of regulated underground storage tanks are required to register their tanks with the DNR. Tanks registered with the Department are issued small metal registration tags that must be attached to the tank fill pipe. Tanks without registration tags cannot be filled by petroleum suppliers. Additional Requirements for Underground Storage Tanks All underground storage tanks should have been upgraded or permanently closed prior to December If you have a tank with a capacity of 1,100 gallons or more you are required to attach an annual DNR registration tag to the fill pipe by April 1 of each year. For tanks with a capacity equal to or less than 1,100 gallons, you are required to have a permanent DNR registration tag attached to the tank fill pipe. All underground storage tanks (except heating oil tanks) must have an annual or permanent registration tag from the Iowa DNR affixed to the fill pipe. What is required to upgrade my underground storage tank? Upgrading Underground Storage Tanks Upgrading an underground storage tank improves the ability of the system to prevent a spill or release. Iowa DNR requires that all regulated underground storage tanks be upgraded prior to December of 1998 or be permanently closed. Options for upgrading include the addition or retrofit of an underground storage tank with cathodic protection for corrosion prevention, interior lining or spill or overfill controls. Contact your regional DNR Field Office for more information on upgrading an underground storage tank. Contact information is included in the For More Information section of this document. How do I install a new underground storage tank? New Underground Storage Tanks For new tanks, proper installation is the key to minimizing leaks. Even scratches in a metal tank, caused by careless installation, can increase corrosion and tank deterioration. You must select an Iowa certified tank installer to install your new underground tank. The lowest job bid may not be the best if the tank installer is inexperienced or careless. All new and replacement underground tanks installed after November 28, 2007 must have secondary containment. You must notify the Iowa DNR of your intent to install an underground storage tank at least 30 days prior to installation of the tank. After installation, you have 30 days to register the tank with DNR. Proof of pollution liability insurance or some other proof of financial ability to address potential contamination to the environment also is required. After you register your underground storage tank with the DNR and submit proof of financial responsibility, the Department will issue registration tags that must be attached to the tank fill pipe before the tank can be filled. Where should I locate new aboveground or underground tanks? Aboveground and Underground Storage Tank Location The location of an aboveground tank or underground tank is very important. You are legally required to: Locate any petroleum storage tank and fueling area at least 100 feet down slope from wells, bodies of water, ag drainage wells, unused cisterns and unplugged abandoned wells. Locate aboveground tanks 40 feet from all buildings and property lines for safety. 100 feet from residences for safety. 7

8 8 To protect surface water and groundwater from contamination, it is best to also follow these recommendations: Locate petroleum tanks away from high vehicle traffic areas. Never locate tanks in flood plains or where the water table is near the surface. Locate aboveground storage tanks on a waterproof surface such as concrete or one of the newer synthetic fabrics. Spill and overfill collection devices, such as secondary containment structures or dikes, also must be liquid tight. Securely anchor aboveground storage tanks to prevent displacement during floods or high winds and on rugged terrain. To protect from vandalism, use lighting to secure the location, especially when tanks are located in remote areas. How do I properly remove an underground storage tank? Underground Storage Tank Removal and Closure Unused tanks left in place can cause problems for owners and operators many years later. Idle tanks are likely to corrode, causing residual fuel to leak and leach into groundwater. If you have unused tanks on your property that contain fuel oils, use all the fuel in the tank if possible. If the tank contains unusable fuel oil, contact your petroleum distributor for removal. The DNR must be notified at least 30 days prior to tank removal. Permanent closure is done by an Iowa certified remover involving removing the tank from the ground or filling the tank in place with an inert solid material like sand. A closure assessment must be completed to determine if a fuel release occurred during the life of the tank. You should always document the steps you have taken to close underground storage tanks, including notification of the DNR. Removed tanks can be reused in an approved manner, disposed of at a salvage yard or taken to a DNR-permitted landfill with a special waste authorization. Contact the DNR if you have questions about underground storage tanks. What should I do if I have a spill? Spill Control for Aboveground and Underground Tanks If you notice that your petroleum storage tank is leaking or a spill has occurred, take immediate action to keep the spill from spreading. Your SPCC plan should include specific information that will help you handle a spill. Petroleum spills and leaks can be contained with kitty litter, oil dry, adsorb or bales of straw or hay. Spilled materials must be removed immediately and used as soon as possible. If an underground storage tank is leaking, it should be immediately emptied. Reporting a Spill If you discover a leak or spill from any tank, whether above or below ground, Iowa law requires that you notify the DNR through the 24 hour spill reporting hotline. Specific guidelines for spill reporting include: Underground tanks that have been removed cannot be used to store food, a regulated product, petroleum or hazardous substances. You must report oil spills immediately to the EPA National Response Center and within 6 hours to the Iowa DNR. Reporting a spill to Iowa DNR within six hours DOES NOT result in an automatic fine. However, the DNR may penalize you if you fail to report a spill within 6 hours, the spill causes a fish kill, is a prohibited discharge or you fail to take appropriate action to contain and/ or clean up the spill. If a petroleum distributor overfills your tank while depositing fuel, the tank owner must report the spill within 24 hours to Iowa DNR at All other spills and tank leaks must also be reported as soon as possible, but no later than 6 hours after onset or discovery. Call the DNR 24 hour spill reporting hotline at You will be assigned a DNR Spill Number when you report the spill. A written report to DNR of the Hazardous Condition is required within 30 days of the verbal notification. Include the DNR Spill Number in the report. The DNR will advise you on what other reports you may need to complete. All spills reaching ditches, waterways and bodies of water must be reported immediately to the EPA National Response Center.
