State by State Guide to UST Regs by SourceNA

Calling all Class A/B UST Operators nationwide: Our friends at Source North America have done an excellent job summarizing the status of each state’s UST regulations, including whether the state is approved by EPA (important to know if the 2018 deadline applies to you), as well and major rule changes and important links to state-specific rules. Check it out!

Franklin Fueling Summary of the EPA Rules

Normally we like to format our own version of things like the new EPA UST rules, but Franklin Fueling Systems did an excellent job creating a nifty below ground map that shows each of the rule changes and points to each change as it relates to various locations on a buried UST system. Plus you can see all the parts underground. It’s very helpful and very visual.

Note that October 13, 2018 deadline only applies to states that are not EPA-approved and states that also happen to have the same October 13, 2018 deadline. Not sure if the deadline applies to you? Give us a shout.

But meanwhile download this cool brochure.
