Abstract:
Fixed facilities store quantities of oil in above- or below- ground storage tanks. The atlas document those facilities with a storage capacity of 42,000 gallons or more, whether the product is stored in a single above-ground tank or a series of above-ground tanks. This volume threshold also applies to facilities that transfer oil over water. While documenting facilities that meet the 42,000 gallon threshold, the atlas highlights two special types of fixed storage facilities. Riverine facilities that transfer oil products over the water have been differentiated from the other types of potential spill sources, and are referred to as Marine Transfer Facilities (MTRs). Their proximity to major rivers, as well as the potential spill risk posed by on-loading and off-loading to vessels, merits distinction. Another special case includes facilities known to handle high volumes of oil, generally one million gallons or more. Such facilities are required to complete Facility Response Plans (FRPs) under OPA, and are highlighted in paper atlases as having FRPs. The required elements of such plans include documentation of potential harm related to accidental spills, response contingency protocols, and training documentation. Facilities required to complete FRPs are distinguished as a special class, not only because of the high volumes of oil stored on-site, but also because of the spill response planning and training they are required to complete. Of note, all MTRs that transfer more than 42,000 gallons of oil are required to complete FRPs. This coverage helps to bring such areas within the Michigan counties of Leelanau, Charlevoix, Emmet, Cheboygan, Presque Isle, Alpena, Montmorency, Otsego, Antrim, Grand Traverse, Alcona, Oscoda, Crawford, Kalkaska, Benzie, Roscommon, Manistee, Missaukee, and Wexford to the attention of spill planners and responders. The locations of these facilities were obtained and quality assured/quality controlled using maps and individual feedback from various public agencies and private sector groups regarding specific sites.
Purpose:
In order to better protect unique commercial, environmental, and cultural resources from oil spills, the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 mandated a coordinated effort by federal, state, and local regulatory agencies and the regulated community to enhance oil spill preparedness and response. This coverage provides the location and attached data for the 19 counties of the Northern Michigan Mapping-area. The development of spatial databases and geographic information systems is done pursuant to implementing the preparedness and response mandates of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990.
Supplemental_Information:
These data were prepared at map scales of 1:24,000 and are best used in applications of comparable resolution. In addition, these data were developed to meet specific project objectives related to contingency planning and spill response and therefore may not represent exhaustive feature inventories.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Great Lakes Commission staff working on the Area Contingency Planning project verified all descriptive and spatial attributes and collected confirmation from landowners and/or managers of attributes and boundaries via surveys or direct external review. Spatial data were cross-checked with multiple sources. Quality assurance and quality control for the data were developed utilizing in-house standard operating procedures.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Data were developed for this layer utilizing primary sources, primarily federal, and private owners/operators. Initial data were supplied by state regulatory agencies overseeing oil and oil product storage, handling, and transporting facilities in hard copy and electronic formats. The U.S. EPA Region 5 supplied the Great Lakes Commission with data from the FRPTracker and SPCCTracker databases. These databases supplied the primary informational source for all Oil Pollution Act of 1990 regulated facilities (1 million gallons of storage or 42,000 gallons of over water transfer of oil and oil products and the potential to impact environmentally and economically sensitive areas and the surface waters of the U.S.) and Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures regulated facilities with over 42,000 gallons of storage. Data and locational information were surveyed through the owners/operators and the locational features were corrected to assure features, such as surface water intakes, were located on surface waters at the 1:24,000 scale on the appropriate base map. An exhaustive external review process was performed by the primary holders of data. Location and attribute information is only as accurate and complete as the information specifically applies to each individual record at the time of data development. Data for these surface water intake facilities are attributed points, plotted in ArcView 3.2 GIS. These points were generated in 1999 based on current information form primary sources but not necessarily always exactly overly the base map 7.5 minute quadrangle maps with previous publication dates.
Completeness_Report:
This coverage does not necessarily include all potentially regulated facilities within the given Northern Michigan Mapping Area. Primarily, the federal and state regulatory agencies overseeing these facilities provided the initial source and accurately portray these facilities, but not necessarily all facilities. Specifically, the SPCC-regulated facilities will be under represented in this atlas. This layer represents available data as of 1999. Exhaustive efforts were made to compile as thorough an atlas as possible.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Horizontal positional accuracy is tested by visual comparison of hard copy check plots to the source materials and verifying the location of the data on screeen relative to other data layers in the same geographic area.

Process_Description:
Data for the "Potential Spill Sources, Fixed Facility" layer were developed from the U.S. EPA Region 5. These sources include the database programs FRPTracker and SPCCTracker from the U.S. EPA Region. Criteria for inclusion in this mapping project included all facilities regulated under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 and those facilities regulated under the Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures regulation (40 CFR part 112) and have a minimum storage capacity of 42,000 gallons. Either hard copy or electronic information was utilized, including Internet sources citing the intake locations and attribute information was extracted as applicable. The 7.5 minute quadrangle maps, as digital raster graphics, were also used as a base layer for locational information. The data were developed by the Great Lakes Commission and surveys were prepared for submission for each oil and oil product facility. The surveys were completed and returned to the Commission by the applicable owners/operators of the facilities. Additional phone and mail correspondence was also used to fill in applicable data gaps in the preparation of the draft atlas. The data was plotted in a GIS using ESRI's ArcView 3.2 and displayed against the digital raster imagery at a scale of 1:24,000. Data links were incorporated into these GIS files to match the mapped sites to the appropriate data record as outlined in Section 5.2.1, Entity and Attribute Overview. Draft hardcopy atlases were prepared from this data, supplied by the Great Lakes Commission, and the USGS's Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (UMESC) in Onalaska, Wisconsin. The UMESC produced hardcopy maps in portable document files (.pdf) format at scales of 1:25,000 and 1:100,000. These maps were then reproduced and distributed by the Great Lakes Commission for external review by primary source dataholders. All updated, corrected and amended information was then added to the project files and returned to the UMESC for final atlas preparation.
