On December 14, 2007 Utility Solid Waste Activities Group (“USWAG”) submitted comments on EPA’s proposed amendments to the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (“SPCC”) regulations, popularly known as the “Loose Ends” proposal. USWG congratulated EPA for publishing an innovative proposal that USWAG believes will streamline the SPCC program in a number of important areas. The amendments in this Loose Ends proposal are wide-ranging and many do not affect the utility industry. USWAG confined their comments to those amendments and preamble discussions that are either unique to the electric and gas utility industry or have a significant effect on industry’s operations.
