Tank Trouble Tuesday

Fuel drops happen frequently, but an inside perspective is rare! Site operators in South Carolina had their double-walled fiberglass tank cleaned, then requested a video of the fuel drop of diesel fuel, which we were able to provide with our TankCam HD inspection service

11 Weeks Until the UST Revised Regulation Deadline


UST owners and operators in Indian country and in states, territories, and the District of Columbia (collectively referred to as states) without UST state program approval (SPA) must meet remaining 2015 federal UST requirements on or before the FEDERAL deadlines. 
Are you ready!?  October 13, 2018, which is only 11 weeks away, is the deadline for meeting the remaining underground storage tank (UST) requirements in the 2015 revised UST regulation.  Key takeaways about the compliance deadline are:  
States with state program approval must re-apply by October 13, 2018 if they wish to retain program approval status.  
UST owners and operators in states with program approval must continue to follow their states’ requirements, which may be different from the 2015 federal UST requirements. State requirements can be found here
I acknowledge and appreciate the dedicated effort and remarkable work by state, territorial, and tribal UST programs; owners and operators; testers; and others in the UST community who have made significant progress in meeting the October compliance deadline.  Although some may still have more to do, collectively we have made much progress to date.  For more information about the October compliance deadline, see EPA’s UST website https://www.epa.gov/ust/revising-underground-storage-tank-regulations-revisions-existing-requirements-and-new#compliance. 
As always, I am extremely grateful for your attention to and help with keeping our environment safe from petroleum UST releases.  Please share your ideas or feedback on what EPA can do to help everyone achieve compliance; contact me or Tony Raia (raia.anthony@epa.gov or 202-566-1021) of my staff.
