New Drills and Exercise Regulations

On January 1, 2019, new California regulations were finalized to implement Senate Bill 861, expanding OSPR’s authority to inland waterways of the State. These new regulations apply to inland pipelines, production facilities, and railroads. Similar to regulations adopted in 2014 for marine facilities, there are specific drill objectives tailored to the type of plan holder based on reasonable worst case spill volumes. Plan holders are responsible for conducting annual tabletop exercises and all objectives must be successfully exercised over any consecutive three year period. Additionally, if a plan holder relies on its own on-water containment and recovery equipment, equipment deployment drills shall be conducted within the first six months of the year and must successfully meet a set of five objectives.
