Oil spills present a significant threat to the environment. To minimize the number, size, and impact of spills degrading the environment, EPA’s Pacific Southwest Region conducts inspections, trainings, on site spill response exercises, and enforcement. The Region also provides emergency response personnel in the event of a major spill.

To learn more about the regulatory requirements concerning oil spill prevention (i.e. Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plans) and response (i.e. Facility Response Plans), please go to EPA's Oil Spills website.

Oil Spill Program Outreach

EPA’s Pacific Southwest Region offers presentations and workshops to the regulated community and state and local governments on oil spill regulations and requirements, and proper spill response. For further information contact:
