On October 21, 2015 the State Water Board sent out notice to Underground Storage Tanks (UST) owners and operators describing federal regulations they need to meet in addition to California’s UST requirements.

UST owners and operators must comply with the new federal regulations that became effective October 13, 2015. The letter informs owners and operators where they can find more information on how to meet federal UST regulations.

In addition, detailed tables have been compiled to assist UST owners and operators in determining which of the new requirements in the federal UST regulations need to be met and by when. The tables contain compliance deadlines, a general description of each of the new federal regulations that are more stringent than California UST statutes and regulations, and the federal citation. A copy of the letter is posted at: http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/ust/tech_notices/docs/ca_fed_regs.pdf.
