Owning and Operating UST facilities
If you have thought about purchasing or opening a retail fueling business, you should be familiar with what regulations must be followed to keep the tanks in compliance. Every state has slightly different requirements for regulating USTs, so you should be familiar with the requirements in your state. As a UST owner, you will have many responsibilities, such as:
•Your tanks must be properly registered with the state (including notifying them when the property changes hands or if you decide to later close or replace any of the USTs)
•You are responsible for recognizing and following state UST regulations, including state or federally-mandated upgrades to the tank system or piping.
•You are responsible for completing UST Operator Training, if required by your state.
•You must protect against corrosion. •You will need to monitor your tank monthly.
•You are expected to detect leaks quickly, before contamination spreads.
•You need to keep records of leaks, maintenance, inspections, repairs, etc.
•You are responsible for reporting and cleaning up any releases.
•You must pay for the cleanup of any releases. Tank owners are required to demonstrate financial responsibility, proving that they will be able to fund a cleanup, if required. Many states have insurance programs or trust funds for UST owners that can assist with paying for cleanups, providing the tanks are in compliance and all appropriate regulations are followed.
