Self-Certification of farm SPCC plans

If the oil storage on the farm is less than 10,000 gallons total, can a farmer self file a plan and do regular self-inspections and be in compliance?

Yes, and you do not have to file the plan with EPA. If over 10,000 gallons, you will need a professional engineer to certify your plan.
