EPA TO SPONSOR OIL SPILL PREVENTION SEMINAR IN ATLANTA ON FEB. 1

 ATLANTA, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will sponsor a one day seminar on Monday, Feb. 1, regarding the prevention of oil spills from above-ground storage tanks.
 The seminar, offered free of charge to the general public, will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Space Science and Technology Building on the campus of Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
 The seminar, developed by EPA, is designed to promote better understanding and compliance with existing Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) regulations. EPA staff will present information to assist in developing spill prevention plans, and will discuss proposed changes to the regulations.
 Industry and government representatives, owners and operators of facilities who store petroleum products in above-ground tanks, and consultants who prepare and certify SPCC plans are encouraged to attend the seminar. Due to space restrictions, enrollment is limited to those affected by the regulations within Georgia.
 Those who plan to attend should register by contacting the Georgia Tech Office of Continuing Education at 404-894-2400. For additional information, contact Art Smith at 404-347-3931.
