Sunrise Ag Energy, LLC established the business objective of providing a local source of diesel fuel to support its clients needs in southwestern Illinois. To meet this objective, the company purchased a marine and bulk petroleum terminal in Meredosia, Illinois, along the Illinois River. The company updated site equipment and constructed a new truck receiving/load rack.
A TRC project team was established to gather facility and emergency response information; review existing company operating procedures; complete a hazard identification and vulnerability analysis; evaluate strategies to address small, medium, and worst case oil discharge scenarios; and establish the U.S. Coast Guard National Preparedness for Response Exercise Program (PREP) based drills/exercises and training to implement the Plans.
The Facility Response Plan (FRP) and Emergency Response Action Plan (ERAP) were prepared in accordance with the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), applicable Area Contingency Plan (ACP), and the U.S. EPA Region 5 Regional Contingency Plan. Approval of the Plans were secured through the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. EPA Region 5 and satisfied the following regulatory requirements:
A written task implementation plan was prepared and reviewed with the company to ensure that the requirements of the Plans were assigned, tracked, completed, and sustained.
The company met its business objective to supply fuel to its customers within the desired time frame. The Plans met agency requirements, and the task implementation plan provided a framework to implement and sustain the company’s preparedness and response for oil releases.
