Compliance Deadline Approaches for UST Rule Changes

The Spring edition of Hixson’s EH&S From Experience newsletter looks at Compliance Deadline Approaches for UST Rule Changes.  In July 2015, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) published new regulations on Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) containing petroleum-based or hazardous substances [40 CFR 280], which added various new operation and maintenance requirements.  While these regulations became effective 10/13/2015 with a compliance deadline of 10/13/2018 for most previously installed systems, the site-specific compliance deadlines are dependent upon the type and equipment setup of tank installed, date when installed, etc., and now also include USTs which store fuel for emergency generators.
