Spill Reporting Placards (PDF 139K, updated February 2013) – The placards list contact numbers for the ADEC Area Response Teams and summarize notification requirements for discharges of oil and hazardous substances. Color version (PDF 134K, updated February 2013)

Spill Reporting Form (PDF 389K, updated 6/16/2014) – This optional form can be faxed to the appropriate DEC office following telephone notification of a discharge. See the How To Report section near the top of this page for fax numbers. See Form Instructions.

Oil and Hazardous Materials Incident Final Report (PDF 29K, updated 9/19/2000) – This report is required by State regulation 18 AAC 75.300(e). It is due within 15 days of cleanup completion or, if no cleanup occurs, within 15 days of the discharge.

Monthly Spill Log (Word 283K, updated 2/6/2013) – A person in charge of a facility or operation shall maintain, and provide to the Department on a monthly basis, a written record of any discharges of oil from 1 to 10 gallons to land.

Contaminated Soil Transport and Treatment Request Form (PDF 37K, added 7/22/2009) – Complete and submit this form to the ADEC Prevention and Emergency Response Program whenever contaminated soil from a spill site is transported offsite for treatment (e.g., thermal desorption or bioremediation) or disposal. The form must be submitted for ADEC approval prior to transport of the soil from the incident site. Contaminated soil shall be transported as a covered load in compliance with 18 AAC 60.015. Note: Bonded treatment facilities are allowed to co-mingle contaminated soil for treatment under their approved facility operations plan. Post-treatment soil samples are collected and analyzed at regular intervals to insure that the contaminants are successfully treated. Because the post-treatment analytical results for co-mingled soils are provided directly to ADEC, the Responsible Party does not have to provide a separate copy of the post-treatment analytical results as indicated in the form.
