New EPA Underground Storage Tank (UST) rule

Effective October 13, 2015, a new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule sets updated requirements for underground storage tanks (USTs) aimed at improving leak prevention and detection. EPA’s actions should also serve to promote tank regulation uniformity across the U.S., ¬†close regulatory gaps, update technologies and incorporate the secondary containment and operator training requirements required by the Energy Policy Act of 2005. EPA’s new rules preserve prior exclusions for lift cylinders and wastewater tanks.
