Petroleum Products

The University of Houston Main Campus and Technology Bridge are both subject to rules regarding petroleum products, or oil. These items include oil of any kind or in any form such as: fats, oils, or greases of animal, fish, or marine mammal origin; vegetable oils, including oils from seeds, nuts, fruits, or kernels; and, other oils and greases, including petroleum, fuel oil, sludge, synthetic oils, mineral oils, oil refuse, or oil mixed with wastes other than dredged spoil. Different sets of rules are pertinent for the underground storage of oils (such as in tanks for the University's fueling station) and for wastewater and stormwater systems such as grease traps and oil-water separators. If you have petroleum products, contact EHS for details on how you can comply with the University's Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plan.
