Not Sure About the New UST Testing Rules? Let Us Help

Attention Class A/B UST Operators: There’s a number of new testing requirements for your UST system. Need a simple explanation of what needs testing?

Use this easy to read table below that explains what you must do to comply. But remember: not every rule applies to every UST site. It depends on whether you have certain types of equipment (like an ATG) and whether you use that equipment to comply with the rules.

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 the 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.

Based on personal experience since then he believes, anecdotally, that things are getting better. But is there a way to prove it? Ben set out to find out.

Tribal UST Field Trip Exercise a Big Hit

Ben Thomas of UST Training recently spoke at the 8th annual Tribal Lands and Environment Forum in Spokane, Washington, which was attended by over 500 people, representing over 160 tribes. The four day conference had a number of breakout sessions in a variety of environmental topics (USTs being one), an exhibit hall, and excellent opening and closing ceremonies. Ben spoke alongside EPA officials about ideas to help the tribes get ready for the October 13, 2018 deadline. UST systems on Indian Country are subject to Federal EPA and not state UST laws, so the October 13, 2018 deadline dominated much of the conversion during the conference. Remote and rural locations of many tribal UST sites make it difficult to service and test tank systems without additional costs.
