New federal Underground Storage Tank (UST) rules in 2013

24 Jun

Over five years ago US EPA initiated a rule making to update its underground storage tank (USTs) regulations to reflect changes in technology since the rules were issued in the late 1980s and to reflect the requirements of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct) in Title XV, Subtitle B.  Many of the updates involve changes to employee training, secondary containment requirements for tanks and piping, adding operation and maintenance requirements, and adding new leak detection and prevention technological requirements, among other updates.  US EPA currently projects that it will publish the final rule in the Federal Register in December 2013.
