The owner of a regulated underground storage tank (UST) facility must provide closure notification to the Underground Storage Tank Program least 30 days prior to any scheduled UST system permanent closure. A regulated UST facility is any facility having an individual tank capacity greater than 110 gallons or of unknown size that store a regulated substance. Does not apply to owners of residential heating oil USTs and non-residential heating oil USTs not larger than 1,100 gallons.
The owner must notify the Underground Storage Tank Program at least 30 days prior to the scheduled UST system permanent closure. C losure notification received less than 30 days prior to the scheduled UST system permanent closure will be accepted during an environmental emergency.
The Underground Storage Tank Program must be notified of any closure schedule changes as soon as possible.
