DEQ encourages owners and permittees to take the necessary steps to comply with the new requirements now. All requirements be- come enforceable on October 1st. This means that, in order to remain compliant with UST statutes, and avoid the possibility of financial penalties, you must complete all required testing on or before October 1st.
