The document was prepared for EPA Region X to assist publicaly owned treatment works (POTWs) in implementing a component of their Pretreatment Program, namely the prevention of accidental spills and slug discharges from industrial users. Such spills and slug discharges could cause damage to a POTW's collection system, interfere with the operation or its treatment plant, affect water quality and sludge usage, and potentially affect worker health and safety. The important elements of an accidental spill prevention program include the following: identification of potential sources and risks, evaluation and/or development of legal authority to regulate spills and slug discharges, requirements for industrial users to develop Accidental Spill Prevention Program plans and submit them to the POTW for review, inspection and monitoring of potential sources of problem discharges, development of emergency procedures and resources.
