Release Detection for Underground Storage Tanks and Piping
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides an overview of the 2015 federal underground storage tank (UST) system requirements and regulations for release detection and piping.
The presentation is not a substitute for U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations nor is it a regulation itself — it does not impose legally binding requirements. In other words, some implementing agencies may have additional regulations which apply to the system. State or local regulations may differ from the federal requirements.
This presentation begins with an overview of the federal regulatory requirements for release detection. If your USTs do not meet the release detection requirements described in this booklet, you can be cited for violations and fined. Throughout the presentation, orange updated boxes indicate new requirements in the 2015 UST regulation. Each of the sections focuses on one release detection method for tanks and the requirements for piping. You will find answers in this presentation to many basic questions about how release detection methods work and which methods are best for your UST site.
This 2 PDH online course is intended for petroleum engineers, owners, operators, and personnel of underground storage tanks (USTs) interested in better understanding the release detection of underground storage tanks.
This continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning the basic release detection requirements for underground storage tanks (USTs) and piping
- Understanding the different release detection methods for USTs and choosing the best option for a given application
- Familiarizing with the federal regulatory requirements for release detection
