This just in from EPA: It should help Class A/B UST operators get ready for the new testing deadlines.
Dear UST Colleagues:
As many of you know, we developed questions and answers (Qs & As) to clarify implementation issues regarding the 2015 underground storage tank (UST) regulation, and we posted the Qs & As on the EPA UST website in a Technical Compendium.
We recently added two important updates to the compendium’s Spill buckets, under dispenser containment sumps, containment sumps category. They cover:
- Annual Walkthrough Requirements for Sumps.
- Containment Sump – Alternative Test Procedures – ADDED – Low Level (hydrostatic) UST Containment Sump Testing Procedures at facilities where EPA is the implementing agency(including a sample compliance record/form).
Click on “Spill buckets, under dispenser containment sumps, containment sumps,” and scroll down to appropriate Q&A’s.
Please contact me with questions, and/or other feedback.
Thank you very much.
