2 Small spill: 5 gallons or less of known chemical (low risk) Large spill: greater than 5 gallons of known chemical or any size spill of unknown or seemingly toxic chemical (high risk) Who do you call? What do you do?

3  Safety First ◦ No ignition sources ◦ Protective equipment as needed (gloves, goggles, boots)  Stop the Spill ◦ Upright container, turn off valve, turn punctured container so hole faces up  Contain Spill ◦ Use granular sorbent or pads to absorb spill  Cleanup Spill ◦ Place pads or sorbent into heavy plastic bag or drum for disposal ◦ Put a label on the waste container ◦ Call EHSRM for waste pickup

4  Safety First ◦ No ignition sources  If possible Stop the Spill at its source  Call 911 ◦ Tell them you have a spill on campus ◦ Give location and identify material ◦ City of San Marcos Fire Department is our Primary Responder  Call EHSRM to notify about spill. ◦ We support Fire Department and make all notifications.

5  Texas State will report the spill if it meets the definition of “reportable quantity”  Texas State reports to Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the National Response Center  The Environmental Health Safety and Risk Management Office will report the spill.

6  Hazardous chemical spilled to soil or water above a reportable quantity (1200 chemicals with r.q.)  We have over 10,000 chemicals onsite  Table in 40CFR 302

7  Oil, gas, diesel, kerosene release that makes a sheen on navigable water (San Marcos River, Sessoms Creek)  Spill of hydraulic oil near Jones Dining Hall (2005)  Backhoe sliding into pond near JCK (2008)  One quart of oil can cause big sheen
