Submitting a Spill Plan or Spill Plan Certification


​WV Code, Chapter 22, Article 30 (the Above Ground Storage Tank Act) became effective on June 6, 2015. The Act requires that each owner or operator of a regulated aboveground storage tank (ASTs) submit a spill prevention and response plan (SPRP). All SPRPs must be submitted on or before December 9, 2015.

Accessing the Spill Plan or Spill Plan Certification Website

The Spill Plan certification website is found in the AST registration system. Log in using your ESS login user name and password.

You can only submit spill plans and spill plan certifications for tank registrations that have been accepted by WVDEP. If you have pending or unsubmitted tank registrations, finish them as soon as possible so that you can complete your spill plan and/or spill plan certifications for those tanks.


Under very limited circumstances and with good reason, DEP will provide an owner a waiver, and allow a paper submittal of a tank spill plan/spill plan certification. The request for this waiver has to be made by the owner, in writing to:
