CT Adopts New UST rules

December 30, 2021

Good news from my home state of Connecticut. The DEEP adopted UST rules in December 2021 and take affect pretty much right now. We’re updating our CT Class A/B UST Operator Training course to reflect these new changes which include:

  • Testing spill buckets every 3 years.
  • Removing all ball float valves by 2022.
  • Release detection for emergency power generator USTs.
  • (Interestingly) the prohibition of field-constructed tanks and certain airport hydrant systems.
  • Extra testing requirements for spill buckets, sumps and overfill devices.
  • Testing sumps every 3 years instead of every 5 years.
  • Additional requirements for record keeping for E10+ and B20+ fuels.

Our revised course is being submitted and should be updated soon.
