Requirements for Field-Constructed Tanks and Airport Hydrant Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on underground storage tanks (UTSs), in particular, field-constructed tanks (FCTs) and airport hydrant systems (AHSs) used for storing and maintaining various types of substances. 


Underground storage tanks form a crucial part of our country’s fueling infrastructure. It is important for USTs to be constructed, maintained, and operated in a manner such that petroleum and other regulated substances are stored safely.


The operation and design of Field-constructed tanks (FCTs) and airport hydrant systems (AHSs) is different from conventional UST systems. Consequently, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has introduced additional requirements and regulations to help prevent any potential issues which might arise from these systems. Leaks of hazardous substances and releases contaminate soil and ground water supplies, threatening both human health and the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to follow the established regulations, proper installation and maintenance requirements to help prevent and detect harmful releases from UST systems.


This 4 PDH online course is applicable to industrial, environmental, and civil engineers as well as others who are interested in learning more about Field-Constructed Tanks, Airport Hydrant Systems and their associated regulations.
